Inquiry into Drug Law Reform

Terms of Reference

 

On 11 November 2015, the Legislative Council issues the attached terms of reference for the Inquiry into Illicit and Synthetic Drugs and Prescription Medication.

The Law Reform, Road and Community Safety Committee has since refined the terms of reference and amended the inquiry title to the Inquiry into Drug Law Reform.

The Committee will inquire into, consider and report, no later than 9 March 2018 on:

1) The effectiveness of laws, procedures and regulations relating to illicit and synthetic drugs and the misuse of prescription medication in minimising drug-related health, social and economic harm; and

2) The practice of other Australian states and territories and overseas jurisdictions and their approach to drug law reform and how other positive reforms could be adopted into Victorian law.
