What to know before you go about drugs and alcohol.
Drugs can be laced with harmful and dangerous chemicals. You never know what’s in them, or how your body will react.
Just three grams of cocaine, MDMA or amphetamines is considered a traffickable quantity. Anyone trafficking drugs risks 15 years behind bars.
Of the fatalities on our roads in the last five years, about 41 per cent had drugs in their system, while one in five returned a Blood Alcohol Concentration of over 0.05.
Always be honest about what you or your friends may have taken – it may just save your life. In an emergency always call Triple Zero (000).
