I have been wondering if any of the corroboree make submissions to help sway the NDPSC members' decisions on scheduling. Perhaps, it's wishful thinking, that we can make a difference. I hope I don't come off sounding too ambitious, but I would rather try and fail, rather than do nothing. I am sick of waiting and watching one legislation after another, banning medicines or ethnobotanicals.
One thing that I don't understand is about the decision-making is, they post public notices of what they are proposing to make amendments to, i.e. kava to S4 in the pre Feb 08 gazette. However it is now March and no post Feb notice has been made nor records of reason.
The TGA website was down for a little while but since, I have found the date, the public notce will be available April 9. Here is a list of dates if anyone is interested. Schedule
Personally, I find it a bit awkward navigating through these government websites, hope this helps.
Concerning business, does the state or relevant authorities compensate for the losses due to legislation? Regarding your store Torsten, you can no longer sell GABA or stillheads, what happens to your remaining stock or for the matter stock of herbalistics up north? I really hope this hasn't affected any ethnobotanical store too much.
I've asked previously, but could anyone post a link to the relevant documents regarding GABA\glassware in NSW?
