Can Australia respond to drugs more effectively and safely? – Australia21

This is the report of a day-long roundtable of 17 experts and practitioners held at the University of Sydney in September 2015 to consider drug law reform in Australia. Participants included retired judges, prosecutors, senior  police, prison and parole administrators, drug law researchers and advocates. Discussion focused on ways Australia could develop safer and more effective illicit drugs policies.

The roundtable followed two Australia21 reports in 2012 that documented the failure of the International War on Drugs and explored the range of alternative options to prohibition, including initiatives introduced in other countries.
