IS THE WAR ON DRUGS REALLY WORKING?

PRESENTED BY MICK PALMER AO AND MATT NOFFS

We are at a fork in the road when it comes to our drug laws. Is the war on drugs working? Why is everyone talking about pill testing? Do we stick to what we know, or take a new path?

Mick Palmer AO and Matt Noffs represent the “Take Control Campaign” for Safer, Saner Drug Laws.

Mick Palmer AO is the former Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) with a 33-year career in law enforcement. Since retiring in 2001, Mick has conducted a range of government enquiries and reviews. He is the former deputy chair of the National Council against Drugs and a former member of the Alcohol and Other Drugs Council of Australia.

Matt Noffs is the CEO of the Ted Noffs Foundation, Australia’s largest drug and alcohol treatment service provider for under-25s. As the grandson of the late Rev. Ted Noffs, advocating for marginalised groups has been a part of Matt’s life for as long as he can remember. He has authored two bestselling books, Breaking the Ice and Addicted? He is a regular contributor to the Sydney Morning Herald and The Guardian.

This will be a Zoom Meeting open to all so if you wish to join please contact us below.
