Drug Offences

The law about drugs in Australia is found entirely in Acts of Parliament. In Tasmania the situation is governed by the Customs Act 1901 (Cth), by the Poisons Act 1971 and the Misuse of Drugs Act 2001. The Narcotic Drugs Act 1967 (Cth) and the Psychotropic Substances Act 1976 (Cth) apply certain international conventions to Australia, but do not affect most cases before the courts.
