Today, reports exposed Labor’s plan to allow methamphetamine, or Ice, to be used in its North Richmond drug injecting room.
This followed a promise from Daniel Andrews’ Mental Health Minister Martin Foley that
“…methamphetamine and ice will not be allowed. It’s a different type of drug and a different type of risk that comes with it” (The Age, 31 October 2017)
Victorians couldn’t trust Daniel Andrews when he promised in 2014 that he wouldn’t introduce a drug injecting room in our state.
Daniel Andrews has lied before on drug injecting rooms and he will lie again.
How can we believe Daniel Andrews and Judith Graley when they say they won’t introduce one in our neighbourhood?
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Mental Health, Emma Kealy:
“Daniel Andrews’ drug injecting room will destroy lives, not save them.
“Daniel Andrews and Labor Member for Narre Warren South, Judith Graley, cannot be trusted on Heroin and Ice injecting rooms.
“Daniel Andrews and his Labor MPs have been caught out lying too many times on injecting rooms and we all know it’s only a matter of time before Daniel Andrews’ plan includes opening drug injecting rooms in suburbs like Narre Warren South and Berwick.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Narre Warren South, Susan Serey:
“The Casey community overwhelmingly rejects Labor’s plan to establish drug injecting rooms which encourages the use of illegal drugs rather than help users get off drugs.
“Our community does not want drug injecting rooms or ice addicts who are often violent and risk the safety of our community hanging around the injecting rooms in Narre Warren South, Hampton Park and Berwick.
“I have been working hard to stop any secret plan by Labor to rollout drug injecting rooms in our local community.”
