    The NRLs stance is entirely oriented around what ends up in the media. End of story.

    Nailed it. Not about player welfare, more about the $$$.

    Good. Makes sense after everyone else seems to be getting Section 10 for small time possession.

    No it is not. It is an offence to be in charge of a motor vehicle and found to have traces of drugs in your system. As per my original reply.

    Yes that's what I said --> having historical traces of drugs in your system is now a criminal offence in NSW <--

    On that basis, having alcohol in your system is a criminal offence. There are numerous things that are only an offence if they occur in a particular context.

    So do you get arrested for drugs in your system or only while driving?

    Um, no it's not. It's only a criminal offence if you are caught driving. Do you think it's also a criminal offence if you have more than 0.05 BAC and you aren't driving?

    Edit: Barry beat me to it

    So you can take all the drugs you like, just don't drive a car and don't get caught with them? Sweet.

    I assume proving how they got in your system is what the law can't be arsed with.

    My original point was that in NSW it is actually an offence to have used. You dont need to be under the influence, they just need to test you to find it in your system. Yes whilst driving is where they can catch you.

    Anyway winding waaay back my point was that the NRL are inconsistent as the punishment by the NRL after catching a user by a dope test is softy softy however if the player got caught under a RDT for having used 5 days ago the NRL would throw the book at him.

    Norman got 8 weeks and it was just in his pocket.

    So how long to the drugs they test for stay in your system?

    And is it a case of ANY trace is deemed bad? Or like alcohol you are allowed to drive with some in your system?

    Any trace of drugs in your system. So up to 10 days after you took ice Strides.

    I call bullshit here. It is absolutely illegal to be under the influence of illegal drugs in Australia.

    bag me me for siting my source (again) if you want, but this is from the Alcohol & Drug Foundation...

    If you'd like, I'll also confirm it with a mate of mine who is a Federal Police Officer.
