Former Federal Police Commissioner Calls for Legalisation of Drugs

A former head of the AFP has called for the legalisation of illicit drug use.

Mick Palmer, who was the Australian Federal Police commissioner for seven years, said with the number of arrests and seizures increasing each year, it had become clear prohibition wasn’t working. 

He told Neil Mitchell while policing had improved, it’s had little effect on reducing the supply of drugs. Mr Palmer said society couldn’t police its way out of the problem.
