The Social Policy Commission (KPS) is setting up an ad-hoc committee to discuss the decriminalisation of drugs. A consultative meeting open to all students will be held on 13 September. Here, students, legal and medical experts, activists and recovered drug activists will discuss this controversial topic.
On Monday, the Ministry for Justice, Culture and Local Government organized a seminar for their ‘Raise the Bars’ campaign. Here, people discussed the Government’s White Paper that will lead to a change in Malta’s drug laws.
KSU was represented at this seminar by Social Policy Officer Becky Micallef. SDM was represented by University co-ordinator Thomas Farrugia. Pulse, who have launched their own campaign to get students to discuss drug decriminalisation, were represented by Vice President Chris Vella.
