Is there a secret Labor plan for an Ice injecting room in Macedon?

Opposition Press Releases

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 Mary Anne-Thomas when Labor says it 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.

“Labor Member for Macedon, Mary Anne-Thomas 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 towns like Daylesford, Gisborne and Kyneton.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Macedon, Amanda Millar:

“Our community should not have to put up with having an Ice injecting room in places like Daylesford, Gisborne and Kyneton.
“Ice addicts are often violent, dangerous and out of control and risk the safety of our community hanging around injecting rooms in towns like Daylesford, Gisborne and Kyneton.

“I will be working hard with the local community to stop Labor’s secret plan to rollout more Ice injecting rooms throughout our regional communities.”
