Weeding out injustice: Cash crop

Weeding out injustice: Cash crop was the outcome when the Good Weekend's Frank Robson accompanied Phil Dickie on a speaking tour discussing outcomes of CJC research into the illegal drug trade.

The unskilled and unemployed consititute 10-20 % of cannabis users and 61% of those apprehended; upper level white collar workers make up 10-15 % of users yet only 1.8% of those caught. "The old saying the rich get stoned and the poor get busted still applies," notes Dickie. Cash Crop, Good Weekend color magazine (Age and Sydney Morning Herald), 9 October 1993
