FIFTY-four synthetic psychoactive substances and classes of substances have been banned in Victoria since the State Government began its crackdown on synthetic drugs in 2011, according to Police Minister Kim Wells.

Mr Wells said these bans included 29 synthetic cannabinoids and classes of synthetic cannabinoids.

“The bans under Victoria’s drugs laws relate to specific chemicals,” Mr Wells said.

“Applying the bans to the chemicals ensures that any synthetic cannabis product containing a banned chemical, regardless of the product’s name or packaging, is prohibited under Victoria’s drug laws.”

Despite these bans, a former long-term user said a number of synthetic drugs were “readily available” over-the-counter at some shops and online.

“It should be completely off the shelves; it shouldn’t be available to anyone,” she said.

Cannaboids are often labelled as “potpourri” and carry the warning “not for human consumption”.

Mr Wells said the state supports the Federal Government’s recently announced moves to strengthen laws around sales and marketing of the substances, ensuring products had a valid use.

“In conjunction with the strong action the Napthine Government has already taken, the Federal Government recently announced legislation where all psychoactive substances, such as synthetic drugs, will be prohibited unless importers can prove they have a legitimate use,” Mr Wells said

Federal Justice Minister Michael Keenan said this meant rather than law enforcement having to prove a synthetic drug was illegal, the burden would be placed on the person importing it to prove that it was legal and had a legitimate use.

“There’s nothing synthetic about the damage these drugs cause,” Mr Keenan

“They are not harmless, they are not safe, they have deadly consequences.”

The legislation is currently before the Commonwealth House of Representatives.

Feds push dental project wait

Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said while he considered the project a priority for the region, there was no available funding until the launch of the government’s National Stronger Regions Fund in 2015.

The overall $6.7 million dental lab project has been in limbo since the federal election.

Former Regional Australia Minister Catherine King committed $4 million to the facility last year, but it was not signed off on before the change of government.

A State Government funding announcement on Friday was welcomed by LCHS as the second last step to the project’s fruition, as the Federal Government wanted to see a state contribution before it committed its own funds.

State Health Minister David Davis announced $578,000 for a new roof, solar electricity generation system and rainwater recycling system at the Churchill building on Philip Parade.

“It was built in 1974 and has been in desperate need of some work,” LCHS board chairman John Guy said.

“This money will go a long way towards making the building a lot more environmentally friendly.”

Mr Guy said he was “confident” of securing the Federal Government funding to allow the full project to proceed.

“All indications we’ve had from Darren Chester and the Minister is the funding will come through,” he said.

Mr Chester said LCHS had “done everything right” and he would work with the service to put forward an application to the four-year $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund.

“The deputy prime minister’s office will release the grant guidelines before the end of this year and we’ll have a chance to put forward projects for consideration like this one,” Mr Chester said.

“The fund is essentially a regional development fund which targets regions of higher than average unemployment.

“I expect it will look favourably upon projects which have demonstrated funding from other levels of government.”

However, he said announcements of successful applicants would not take place until the start of the next financial year.

According to LCHS, the prosthetics lab and training facility will create 38 new jobs, including 12 dental prosthetists and will provide $1.5 million annually in additional health services.

Club vice president Dean Brown surveys the damage caused by vandals.

AN unwanted annual tradition has come around again at Morwell Youth Club Junior Football Club, with its clubrooms the target of theft and vandalism again last week.

Club vice president Dean Brown made the discovery last Thursday, when he visited the clubrooms in search of a football jumper and could not get through the front door, which was blocked by a chair.

Upon entering the premises, he noticed several smashed walls, damage to the ceiling, a broken door and a television, donated by Morwell RSL, stolen.

The culprit also broke into the toilet block next door, apparently through the ceiling.

The vandalism comes on the back of a $12,000 makeover of the clubrooms, self generated by canteen takings and fundraising throughout the season.

Vandals damaged walls and a ceiling at Morwell Youth Club Junior Football Club.

“It’s all the people at the club that put their money in,” Mr Brown said.

“Everyone at the club has put a lot of time in, we’ve made all this (gesturing to the honour wall), it never used to look like this, we’ve just done the whole clubrooms up in the last couple of years.”

Mr Brown said it had become a regular occurrence, stating “every year we get a break in”.

“They’re not really gaining anything because there’s nothing here that’s valuable… all it is is just trophies and memorabilia, so really they’re just wrecking it for the kids,” he said.

Mr Brown said Latrobe City Council had pledged to help board up and repair the damage.

The break-in occurred between last Tuesday night and Thursday afternoon.
