Wim­mera Drug Ac­tion Task­force will de­liver a ‘Tack­ling Il­le­gal Drugs’ fo­rum in part­ner­ship with the Aus­tralian Drug Foun­da­tion in Fe­bru­ary.

The fo­rum will tar­get sports clubs in the Wim­mera and will give at­ten­dees an op­por­tu­nity to learn more about deal­ing with il­le­gal drugs.

Task­force co-or­di­na­tor Sally Pymer said sta­tis­tics showed more than 40 per­cent of Aus­tralians aged 14 and over had tried an il­le­gal sub­stance.

She said drug use was a widespread is­sue and could af­fect any sports club.

The fo­rum will be on Wednesday, Fe­bru­ary 27 from 7pm to 9pm at Hor­sham RSL con­fer­ence room.
