If Senator Bolkus or anybody else knows where $5 caps of heroin are
available in Australia, please let me know. This is drug mythology. Heroin
is ubiquitous and cheap but the lowest price I have heard of from reliable
informants is $35 a cap.

There are people in the zero tolerance brigade saying that starter packs
with heroin and an injecting kit are available in Sydney for $5. This is
patently untrue but serves to alarm the population and heighten fears of the
"drug scourge" especially during an election campaign.
