Sex Party leader Fiona Patten is calling for an 18 month trial of a legal injecting room at North Richmond.
She tells 3AW Drive’s Tom Elliott that Australia has been supplying needles to drug users for the last 30 years.
“What I want to do is establish legislation for a pilot program for a medically supervised injection centre to be operating in North Richmond.”
“This is about saving lives,” says Ms Patten.
“You cannot have state money spent on a drug injecting room, while at the same time you have state government rules that say drugs are illegal,” Tom Elliott said on 3AW Drive.
