Sale of legal highs finally banned

By Harata Brown

It's the last day of selling legal highs, the new amended law was voted in last night and also bans the use of animal testing.

As the products vanish from the shelves another concern has come to the fore which predicts the drugs will now be available on the black market.

The Greens abstained it's support for the Law, and say that it wouldn't be necessary if the Government had implemented their original legislation properly.

Health Minister Tony Ryall says it will also become illegal to possess these products. The penalty for possessing a small amount is a $500 fine.

Possessing a large amount with intention to supply is punishable by up to two years' jail or a fine of $500,000.

So as the sun sets on Legal Highs, only tomorrow shall know how users will cope with the ban.
