Kealy: Daniel Andrews’ Ice injecting room a ‘honey pot’ for drug crime

Daniel Andrews’ Ice injecting room a ‘honey pot’ for drug crime

Daniel Andrews’ Ice injecting room will not solve Victoria’s drugs crisis.

Daniel Andrews has held Sydney’s Kings Cross drug injecting room as the gold standard to Labor’s plans for a drug injecting room in Victoria.

But reports from local residents and business owners today say the Kings Cross drug injecting room has made the area a “honey pot” for drug deals and anti-social behaviour.

Meanwhile, in Victoria, Daniel Andrews wants to set up his Ice injecting room right next door to a primary school.

Parents have every right to be concerned that Daniel Andrews wants to encourage drug addicts to use Ice next door to their children’s school.

You simply can’t trust Daniel Andrews.

Daniel Andrews lied when he said there’d be no injecting room. Then he lied when he said there’d be no Ice.

The Liberal Nationals will scrap the drug injecting room if we’re elected at November’s State Election.

A better approach is helping addicts, more police on the beat and toughening up our laws to punish parasitic drug dealers and traffickers.

Only the Liberal Nationals will put the safety of our kids first.
