ABORIGINES SNIFFING PETROL FACE A STIFF PENALTY

TRAFFICKING Petrol on Aboriginal lands In South Australia will attract a $50,000 fine or ten years in the slammer, under new penalties proposed by the S/A Govt.
A Bill to be introduced to parliament would make it a specific offence.
Petrol sniffing has been a significant problem on aboriginal lands for many years . like glue sniffing has in the Americas and Europe. This can cause death or permanent damage to heath and an increase in crime and violence and a breakdown of families and the loss of culture
The Govt will set up services for petrol sniffers to assist them to combat the problem.
