ACTION: Contact the Prime Minister, Federal Police Minister, Customs Minister or Attorney General through our website or write to them at Parliament House Canberra, ACT, 2600 and let them know that the public in general and you in particular support strong action against those who import and distribute illegal drugs. Tougher sentencing, more laws, tighter border controls, more money for Customs Officers etc. Ask them to do whatever is best for Australia to better combat the war against drugs and let them know we will support them.
