International Overdose Awareness Day
Labor has supported drug policies that complement law enforcement with evidence-based harm minimisation, early intervention and treatment. But this motion is a typical Greens stunt. It includes a number of policies that are beyond the Commonwealth's control or for which there is not yet evidence in Australia. So, while Labor will commemorate International Overdose Awareness Day on 31 August, we will not be supporting this motion.
