Drug Foundation concerns about testing

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:23 pm on 7 September 2017

The Drug Foundation has raised concerns about the National Party policy on young beneficiaries being drug tested.

The  $72 million four-year plan to increase support for unemployed young people was released yesterday.

It would mean that those who are struggling to find work because of their drug use they would be offered help.

Ross Bell, executive director the Drug Foundation outlines his concerns to Jesse.
