Project Main Description: 

This work aimed to provide an accessible description and assessment of drug policy in Australia from 1985 to 2010, including a description of the policy context, the successive iterations of the National Drug Strategy, trends in drug use and harm, and drug policy actors. It is hoped this report will become the ‘source’ document for those wanting an overview of the Australian situation.
