In a bid to get the reality of drugs out in the open the Victorian Sex Party has launched an unprecedented motion to probe the issue in Parliament.
It’s no secret MP Fiona Patten has a bohemian approach to drug use but she says helping Victorians smoke joints free from police retaliation, is not the point of this inquiry.
It’s about finding out what is really going on.
“We are locking up people from music festivals, along with drug addicts. Why are we paying $700 a night to lock them up when we can be paying $200 to get them off drugs,’’ Ms Patten says.
