Building from the Drug Report and based on the illicit substance chosen for that assessment, this analysis/essay is to critically examine attempts to control use of the chosen substance. Where possible, discussion should focus on Australia. The essay must provide: ? A description of current approaches to reduce supply, prevent/reduce use, and reduce harms associated with use, of the chosen drug in Australia ? A critical analysis of the effectiveness of these approaches, namely what does or does not work? ? Recommendations as to what approaches could be adopted by authorities in Australia to more effectively reduce supply, prevent/reduce use, and reduce harms associated with use, of the chosen drug. You may wish to consider approaches adopted by other nations.
Note: Critical examination/analysis requires that you go beyond description and that you consider in-depth, the ideas and issues raised. This requires application of key concepts and themes as well as support from valid research.
