01 April 2015: Queensland drug raids pave the way for organised crime

Nineteen adult and herbal stores were raided across Queensland during a synchronised police operation yesterday. Many of the stores are members of the Eros Association, an industry body that has long argued for regulation.

Eros Association spokesperson Nick Wallis said the raids were futile and would likely end up with no prosecutions. However he said the increased police activity in the self-regulated marketplace was making legal traders less likely to continue trading while crime gangs were finding the increased police presence more to their style.

22 January 2015: Mark McGowan’s Drugs Moment

Australia’s adults-only association has labeled WA Opposition leader, Mark McGowan’s call to ‘illegalise’ all synthetic cannabinoid substances, as the dumbest moment ever in the development of W.A. drug policy.

Eros Association CEO, Robbie Swan, said all synthetic cannabinomimetics (substances that mimic cannabis) had already been banned in WA in July 2011, following a request by the WA State Drugs and Poisons Unit to the Therapeutic Drugs Administration (TGA). Because the W.A. Misuse of Drugs Act is linked to TGA changes, all cannabinomimetics have been automatically banned in WA since.

“Mr McGowan’s comments reflect the fact that most politicians are not interested in stopping the flow of dangerous drugs into the community”, Mr Swan said. “As long as they appear to be ‘tough on drugs’ and can use the issue to get re elected they don’t even bother to read the literature or try to understand the complexity of the problem”.

16 January 2015: Queensland Laws Fuel Chemical Arms Race

Australia’s adults-only association has called on Queensland police to quickly establish whether the use of synthetic cannabinoids was responsible for the deaths of two Queensland men yesterday or whether there were other factors involved. Eros Social Tonics Coordinator, Nick Wallis said that media conjecture on the circumstantial evidence that was available, was not sufficient to establish a cause and effect situation.

“The Eros Association extends its condolences to the friends and family of the two men who were found dead on Wednesday but only an autopsy and a chemical analysis of drugs found at the scene will reveal the truth. No one should die from using a product they thought would get them high but there may well be other factors here aside from self-medication”, he said.

13 June 2014: Queensland Politicians Uninterested in the Sex Lives of Voters

Despite sending invitations to all 89 Queensland MPs to attend this weekend’s first Gold Coast Sexpo, not one politician has accepted. Eros Association CEO, Fiona Patten, said that the political ‘boycott’ of Sexpo would be strongly offset by the tens of thousands of ordinary Queenslanders who would attend the show over the next few days.
