To the Minister for Justice, the Hon Brendan O'Connor MP.

I wish to make a submission regarding the "Consultation on implementation of model drug schedules for Commonwealth serious drug offences" proposal. My submission incorporates a pro forma used by others, because I consider these points to be worthy of acknowledgement, but I also include some material of my own that I would like to see addressed.

1) In response to question E of the discussion paper I would like to submit that:

a) I oppose any further scheduling of any plants.

b) Those plants that are of concern in regards to drug trafficking and organised crime are already scheduled and any further scheduling will only confuse matters, while criminalising normal behaviour of law abiding citizens.

Consultation on implementation of model drug schedules for Commonwealth serious drug offences

Dear Madam or Sir,

I wish to comment on two categories of issues in the proposed legislation. I write as a retired Senior Research Scientist and Director of Botanic Gardens and Public Programs at the Botanic Gardens Trust, Sydney, though these views are not expressed on behalf of that organization. I also write as an authority on the genus Brugmansia (Hay et al., 2011) which is included in the draft model schedules of controlled plants.

1.The expanded list of plant and fungi species under the model schedule for controlled plants.
