An attempt has been made to decriminalize the drug ice cream and to open more injection rooms.
The recommendations come from lawyers who assist in the special investigation of the New South Wales Commission into Ice, which will be released in January.
According to the petitioner, criminal sanctions for illicit drug supply would continue to exist, but drug use would be considered a "health and social problem" and criminal offenses would be deleted.

Drug users would be referred by the police to a tailor-made health intervention instead of being charged.
Test pill tests would also be introduced if the recommendations were incorporated into the study and those changes were implemented.
There would also be an end to tracking dogs at music festivals.
Injection rooms would be set up according to needs and young people between the ages of 16 and 18 would have access to it, but that would be subject to a clinical assessment.
The entry says that although NSW was once a world leader in drug policy development, it had declined.
The NSW Drug Summit in 1999 resulted in the supervised injection room of Kings Cross.

The unifying senior executive Doug Taylor told the Sydney Morning Herald the possible recommendations would be a & # 39; comprehensive blueprint for a new and much-needed path for NSW drug policy & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Policy makers must embrace a compassionate, fact-based, and health-based response and leave the years of failed policies behind. & # 39;
The next step in the process is for the Commissioner to consider all the evidence, the comments, before further consultation with the panel of experts.
The findings and recommendations will be given to the NSW government in the final report.
