That this House notes that since 1997 there have been nearly 200 published studies into the harmful effects on animals of recreational drugs, such as ecstasy (MDMA), cannabis, cocaine and amphetamines; is concerned that these studies included animals being subjected to lethal doses, electric shocks, loud noise, repeated abdominal injections and brain surgery; is further concerned that much of this animal research duplicates findings obtained from human studies; further notes that much of the animal research is funded through Government support for universities or Medical Research Council grants and centres; calls for the Government to stop granting licences for harmful experiments on animals to investigate the effects of recreational drugs; and urges the Government to reallocate funding to safe and ethical volunteer studies in humans, improving drug rehabilitation facilities and those individuals struggling with their addictions, providing information resources to prevent drug abuse and supporting facilities for families living with the consequences of drug abuse.
