On Thursday 11th of August the NSW cross-parliamentary roundtable on harm minimisation met and heard from a range of experts and drug law reform advocates. Among the issues discussed were, drug checking services, expanded access to the Kings Cross supervised injecting facility, and the decriminalisation of drug possession and use. The group signed a letter to Premier Mike Baird and opposition leader Luke Foley calling for a state wide parliamentary summit on illicit drug use.
