Some intrepid soul has FOI’d stolen methadone in the ACT and under Katy Gallagher’s regime of punishing those who seek information we all get to have a look.
It’s a grim trawl through the malfeasance of prison inmates and grim bureaucratic routine.
The highlight is probably the missing methadone bottle which triggered a ministerial brief in July 2010.
It says something that there even has to be a special routine for patients attending court that day to get their methadone.
That the routines can’t be followed because someone can’t find the key (in a prison) to the drug dispensing “hutch” is part of the grey fabric of failure.
The stealing of a bottle in these circumstances is just miserably predictable.
Do you pay on the first date?
