Forum on drug testing to be held today

GREENS MLC David Shoebridge will host a public forum on roadside drug testing at Nimbin Town Hall from 11am until 1pm today.

It will also include a Q&A session.

Mr Shoebridge is on the Northern Rivers to hear residents' concerns about the tests, and yesterday attended Lismore Local Court to witness the 46 drug driving listings.

He also held a public fourm at the Tatts Hotel in Lismore last night.

"Roadside drug testing needs to be drastically changed to test for all the drugs that are commonly found to impair driving, legal and illegal, and to test at levels that are known to impair driving," Mr Shoebridge said.
