I don't think that the Police or Customs are policing the use and importation of illicit drugs enough. There has been a marked increase in detecting illicit drug factories and growing plantations which has been good. The laws aren't enforced as much as they could been and I also feel that there should be a stronger enforce on sentencing. After 30 years of seeing just what drugs and the so called party drugs can do to peoples lives, and that is not only the user, but family children and friends. Education should be enforced in the school years with out any concerns on the costs. As fare as I am concerned there is no safe party drug, or harmless drug out side of the proscribed market.

So your answer is that you wish things to continue as they are now. Who is bribing you to misread this question the way you have? This is not a matter for law enforcement. World leading for sure, if leading us backwards counts as leadership. I hear you supporting the disgusting situation that exists now, in favour of any change at all.

Senator Conroy can read. Very sad. They don't want to even look at the facts.

From the lips of Senator Conroy, the truth. “The Australian Government has ratified a number of International Agreements that require the criminalisation of these drugs.” Australia is required to criminalise these drugs. Rational discussion, evidence based legislation, improved public health outcomes, crime reduction, are tangential matters. The Australian Government has forfeited its sovereignty on this issue and therefore has no choice. Benny the Hammer and his associates, by mandate from our Uncle Sam, have control of the drugs market in Australia. That circumstance shall remain unchanged. I had hoped for a different answer, but prefer the truth; drugs are criminalised, as is required.

The same propaganda we've heard over and over again. What's the point of asking our so-called "representatives" questions if they're just going to repeat the same, baseless responses?
