Parliamentary Questions


Question Without Notice No. 386 asked in the Legislative Council on 3 August 2021 by Hon Sophia Moermond

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

POLICE — CANNABIS OFFENCES

386. Hon SOPHIA MOERMOND to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer the minister to the harm minimisation strategies, priority substances and priority populations outlined in the Australian government's National drug strategy 2017–2026. How many Western Australians have been charged for cannabis-related crimes associated with quantities pertaining to personal use compared with trafficable offences?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to the representative minister by the Minister for Police.

The Western Australian Police Force advises that a response to this question cannot be provided within the required time frame. The honourable member may wish to place the question on notice. By way of assistance, if the honourable member signs the question and hands it to one of the clerks now, that will put it on notice if that is what she wants to do.
