The coalition government is ditching the requirement to seek scientific advice before setting drugs policy.
As part of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 government must take, or at least listen to, advice from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. That committee needed to have at least six scientists on it.
We call it the Misuse of Government Acts. Others call it the touchy feely approach to mismanagement and tyranny.
Update: Rush read this first.
