Tell your Premier – Legalise MDMA

It’s unfair and unjust to criminalise people for having fun in the way they want.

But our politicians are stuck in the past.

That’s why it’s so important we email our State Premiers directly and demand they stop the unfair criminalisation of MDMA. 

Many people use MDMA for fun and to connect with friends. Legalising it would help us live our best lives without fear of punishment.

It’s time our laws reflected that reality.

Can you take just 2 minutes to email your State Premier or Territory Chief Minister and ask them to legalise MDMA?

Not sure what to write? Here are a few tips! 👇

  1. Make sure you address them by their correct title: The Hon for Premiers and Chief Minister for Chief Ministers
  2. Start with an introduction: Let them know who you are and why you’re writing to them.
  3. Explain why you care: Tell them why you think our current laws around MDMA are unfair. If you’re not sure what to say, you can copy and paste some of the reasons below!
    • People should feel free to explore having fun in the way they see fit. For most people, MDMA is a small part of their lives, and the biggest risk they face is getting locked up because of our unfair and outdated laws.
    • Legalising MDMA could have a huge impact on our society. It would mean people would be supported to live their best lives, not thrown in jail for having fun. And if something goes wrong, it would make it so much easier to get help.
    • Under our laws, people can be punished with up to 2 years in prison for being caught with MDMA. And a criminal record can make it harder to get a job, find somewhere to live and travel overseas – this is unjust and unfair.
    • We want to be able to support each other to have a good time. But our current zero-tolerance laws prevents people from reaching out for help if anything goes wrong, due to fear of punishment. To keep our friends safe, we need to legalise MDMA.
  4. Ask for action: Be clear about what you want your state premier to do – in this case, legalise MDMA
  5. Sign off: Thank them for their time and consideration, and encourage them to take action.
