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.
