Updated June 19, 2018 11:01:14Drugs used for treating pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, anxiety disorders, and eating disorders are now being classed as antiemotics, meaning they’re prohibited in Australia.
Drugs like fentanyl and morphine are considered dangerous by the World Health Organisation and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, while anti-depressants such as Ambien and Seroquel are banned in Australia for the treatment of anxiety.
A ban on the drugs comes as a result of the opioid crisis gripping the country, as heroin is also on the rise.
The Australian Government announced last month that it would move towards legalising all opioid drugs by 2023, and that a number of prescription painkillers would be banned as well.
Drug-free Australia is a long-term plan to reduce Australia’s drug problem, with a goal to end the epidemic by 2025.
It is a policy that has been backed by former prime minister Tony Abbott, who has said he supports drug-free countries to be able to deal with the drug problem.
Drug laws will be tightened on painkillers, which are often cheaper than prescription medicines, and the government will move to legalise heroin, methamphetamine and cannabis, which have all been linked to the rise in opioid deaths.
Drug use has been linked with increased suicide, alcohol abuse, and a rise in the risk of heart disease.
A number of drugs used to treat the painkiller painkiller are currently banned in the country.
Anti-depression drugs such as Prozac, Zoloft and Lexapro are now banned in Australian schools and are currently being treated with sedatives to reduce anxiety.
Anti-anxiety medication such as Xanax is currently banned.
The drugs listed as anti-emetics include anti-analgesics, such as lisdexamfetamine hydrochloride (Lisdex), benzodiazepines such as Ativan, and anti-psychotics, such of clozapine.
Other drugs that are currently considered to be considered anti-social include barbiturates, antidepressants, and sedatives, such in case of seizures.
Drug abuse is also illegal in Australia, but the drug abuse definition is the most restrictive in the world, with drugs such LSD and heroin all considered as being addictive.
The move comes as part of the government’s efforts to make the drug-taking process more socially responsible.
A similar policy is in place in Australia’s capital, Sydney.
Drug offences are expected to be brought under control in the coming years, and some people will be able legally purchase their drugs online.
