Comment on Central Australia’s new export industry: saving kids’ lives by Anonymous.

Wake up and smell the Roses Blair. The VSA legislation is absolutely useless. There is no back end to it and no mandatory treatment centers.
Yes, you can get the court to mandate treatment but where do you put these people? If the petrol sniffer wants to walk away from treatment then they can and the whole process of track and remove the sniffer from the community starts all over again.
The public also needs to know that no amount of orders from the courts will change people’s behavior. Case in point, the Inebriates Act was repealed across Australia in the 70s as it is a well recognised fact world wide that mandated treatment for AOD dependent individuals does not work.
