Decriminalising drugs in the NT will only perpetuate problems

A Northern Territory government committee is currently considering decriminalising possession and use of illegal drugs.  

This move has today been criticised by the Australian Christian Lobby, saying it will only worsen an already bad situation.  

ACL’s acting NT director Wendy Francis said, “Illegal drugs are illegal for a reason, they are harmful not only to those who take them, but also have an adverse impact on the rest of the community.”  

“From anti-social behaviour to violence and criminal activity, illegal drug abuse brings with it a plethora of issues and concerns,” commented Mrs Francis.  

The Australian Christian Lobby is against the recreational use of illegal drugs and urges the Northern Territory government not to decriminalise possession and use of dangerous drugs.
