Victorian government fuels drug problems with injecting rooms

The Australian Christian Lobby says all Victorians should be alarmed by the Andrews government launching a second legal injecting room near Victoria Market.

“The Andrews government broke a pre-election promise by establishing the North Richmond injecting room, and it has been an abject failure of public policy,” ACL Victoria spokesperson Jasmine Yuen said, “Just as ACL previously warned, drugs have become more prevalent near the injecting room, creating a hotspot for drug dealers. Little wonder there is public outcry and resident protests. Yet the Premier continues to foist these social experiments on Melbournians for political purposes. Victorians are entitled to ask – what’s stopping more injecting rooms across the state?”

“The ACL calls upon the Andrews government to abandon this proposal and close the failed North Richmond injecting room experiment. The government should instead send the clear message that illicit drugs are never safe, make drug rehabilitation mandatory for addicts and strongly policing street selling.”
