The Australian government spends millions of dollars on attempting to control the illicit drug trade. Almost 85 per cent of these funds are allocated to law enforcement; 5 per cent goes to treatment and 10 per cent to prevention and research. Meanwhile, the drug industry in Australia grows bigger and richer every year, and as a result, rates of addiction, crime and death continue to rise. This work examines Australia's attempts to control the illicit drug industry and discusses how - within the confines of liberal democratic values and culture - strategies might be improved.
