Former Labor premier says NSW’s radical drug proposal goes too far
Former premier Kristina Keneally is not supporting the NSW government’s plan for a soft approach on drug possession.
The three strike system would mean anyone caught with substances for personal use would receive a warning for the first offence and then fines for two subsequent offences.
A criminal conviction would be recorded on the fourth time.
“I’m not yet convinced that what I see is the right way forward,” Ms Keneally admitted to Ben Fordham.
“I would strongly urge the cabinet to slow down and listen to some experts.”
