Ice deal­ers will now face harsher penal­ties in­clud­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of life in jail. At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Gabrielle Up­ton (pic­tured) an­nounced the changes, say­ing peo­ple charged with man­u­fac­tur­ing or sup­ply­ing large com­mer­cial quan­ti­ties of methy­lam­phetamine or ice, from 500g-1kg, could face life in jail in­stead of the pre­vi­ous max­i­mum sen­tence of 20 years. Ms Up­ton said the NSW Gov­ern­ment was tak­ing ac­tion to meet com­mu­nity ex­pec­ta­tions.
