Drug consumption room in Australia

Minghan Zheng

For this assignment, I will be analysing the opinion pieces regarding the legalisation of drug consumption room in Australia. In order to govern the problem of the drug epidemic, some politicians have expressed the idea of drug consumption room. Drug consumption room enables people taking in a safety place, and under the supervision of health care professionals.

I will focus on the debate around this topic. These are the articles I have found so far:

SMH: ‘Why Australia needs drug consumption rooms’

SMH: ‘Sydney needs drug consumption rooms to help beat ice scourge’

Sunshine Coast Daily: ‘WATERCOOLER: Are ‘drug consumption rooms’ the answer?

Brisbane Times: ‘The safe room’

ABC News: Drug experts plan Australia’s first ice smoking room despite Government opposition
