Criminal Law Enforcement drug schedule

To comment on the Implementation of Model Drug Schedule for Commonwealth Serious Drug Offences. This discussion paper sought comment on various points including classification of some nutritional substances (such as minerals), as drug precursors and the expanded list of plant species under the model schedule for controlled plants. NHAA expressed concern that the paper cast a very wide net and had the potential to cause legitimate users of plants and some minerals to become criminals in the conduct of their daily lives. Enactment of this draft legislation would put many of our members outside the law simply because they practice herbal and nutritional medicine.
