Submission to the Consultation on Implementation of Model Drug Schedules for Commonwealth Serious Drug Offences
Greg Kašarik - 11 Feb 2011
I am writing to oppose any attempts to make plants illegal on the basis of various mind altering substances that they contain. While I am sure that others will address the proposals in order to highlight their impracticality, I do so because your proposals are yet another attack by the Federal Government on my rights, under Section 116 of the Australian Constitution, to practice my religion freely. It is my intention to highlight that these additional restrictions are yet another attack on the principles of religious freedom as contained not only in the Constitution, but also under our obligations with respect to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
