!! Attention Melbourne Heroin Users !!
Western Suburbs Alert
There seems to have been multiple cases over the last month in the western suburbs of Melbourne (Footscray etc.) of heroin being sold that has been cut with some amphetamine like substance, & for opiate users that don’t use uppers this can be a very unpleasant feeling. There does seem to be some heroin in there; but be aware. It is white looking gear in rock form & mixes up relatively easily- from whitey coloured to clear. Some people seem to like it if they are amphetamine users as well. We suggest that you have a regular dealer that you ask them if the gear is different, & if it is maybe have a taste test if you are not tolerant to uppers.
Unsung policy issue: should ‘illicit’ drugs be legal?
It’s good enough for some US states, New Zealand, Uruguay, Switzerland, Spain and the Netherlands. So why not in Australia? All these jurisdictions have recently changed their laws — or are formally considering doing so — on illicit drugs. They are legalising marijuana for personal or medical use, or changing the regulation of psychoactive substances.
In this election campaign there has been a tripartisan silence on whether illicit drugs should be legalised, or managed differently. But is the current system really working so well it cannot be improved?

This Reddit AusPol document was put together by a dedicated HRV member & is very comprehensive. This is one doc definitely worth checking out. Thanks to the ‘limb of kings‘ for this one. Read ‘Reddit’ Article Here.
To help you make an informed choice about who should form government, Of Substance invited political parties seeking seats in the House of Representatives to contribute statements on their policy positions on alcohol and other drugs (AOD). While some declined or weren’t registered at the time of our request, we are pleased to present you with statements from the Major Parties.
