In late 1998 there was a widespread perception that the problem of illicit drugs was not being adequately addressed through existing resources and policies. The Premier of New South Wales made the commitment that, if re-elected in the March 1999 election, there would be a summit on the drug problem. This article describes that drug summit, the purpose of which was to make a fresh start and achieve bipartisan agreement on major strategies to address illicit drugs.
