Drug Equality Alliance
(7th April 2012)
This document (download link below) encapsulates a concise summary of our legal thesis, tuned to address the specific terms of reference required by the Inquiry. We are particularly concerned that the Inquiry labours under the same pervasive errors of law and thinking that demonstrated across government and the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. The whole debate is skewed from the start by reference to discussing 'legal' and 'illegal' drugs', thus normalising the very errors of law that perpetuate the artificial divide at the centre of drug user policy.
