DRUG ADVISORY COUNCIL COMMENTS-

Australia is a target for illicit drugs because we have an increasing use of illicit drugs.

Australia MUST reduce the use of illicit drugs in order to cut off the money flowing out of Australia to terrorist and criminal organizations.

The large illicit drug market here fuels the drugs that are imported into Australia.

Relying on federal authorities to stop these drugs from entering into Australia is only part of the answer.
