A landmark report on the scale of Australia’s ice epidemic has prompted federal justice minister, Michael Keenan, to warn that “our nation’s addiction to this mind-eating, personality-distorting, life-ending drug” is undermining the social fabric of communities.
The Australian Crime Commission has released a report, The Australian methylamphetamine market: the national picture to inform the Australian public on what the Australian Crime Commission sees as a significant threat to the Australian community. It is intended for the report to inform the national response to the methylamphetamine problem.
A factsheet on methylamphetamine provides additional snapshot information about the drug.
A recent article in the Conversation also highlights the threat from the involvement of crime gangs.
