War on P encouraging
Positive progress is being made
in the war on methamphetamine
Prime Minister John Key has
released the latest Indicators and
Progress Report for the Govern-
ment s Tackling Methampheta-
mine Action Plan.
He says while the picture of
methamphetamine supply in
New Zealand remains a complex
one, the efforts of law enforce-
ment agencies are continuing to
produce positive signs.
When the Government began
this plan in 2009, New Zealand
had one of the highest prevalence
rates of P use in the world, with
2.1 per cent of the population
using the drug. The latest data
shows this rate has more than
halved to 0.9 per cent.
While this is positive, the
reality is there are still around
25,000 longer-term, heavy users
of the drug, who are locked in a
cycle of dependence, causing mis-
ery and angst for them, their
families and loved ones, Mr Key
Support for P users through
both the justice and health
systems is available. Waiting
times for community alcohol and
drug services have steadily been
improving, and are markedly bet-
ter than in 2009.
The Alcohol and Other Drug
Treatment Court Pilot began at
the end of last year in the Auck-
land and Waitakere District
Courts, and the Department of
Corrections has increased the
number of treatment places avail-
able to prisoners with drug and
alcohol problems to over 1000.
Mr Key says a process for allo-
cating money forfeited to the
Crown under the Criminal
Proceeds (Recovery) Act and ear-
marked to fund drug and alcohol
rehabilitation initiatives will be in
place later this year.
It is expected around $8 mil-
lion will initially be available for
these initiatives, as well as for
targeted law enforcement tools for
Customs and police.
Mr Key says there are other
encouraging signs, including the
rise in the price of a point of P,
and suggestions the purity of P is
Since this plan was estab-
lished, the price of P has remained
relatively high, which indicates
officials efforts to squeeze the P
trade is having an effect.
