Question 1:

Imagine that s25 of the TAFE Education Act 2002 in your jurisdiction makes it an offence ‘to bring heroin, cannabis, cocaine or any other drug onto a TAFE campus'. The Education Minister said in parliamentary debate that s25 was introduced to prevent drug trafficking on TAFE campuses.

(a) Winnie is caught by a security guard as she is licking white aspirin powder. According to the Macquarie Dictionary, aspirin is a drug. Would Winnie be guilty of the offence.

(b) Cisco is caught with his methadone dose that has been legally prescribed from him. Would Cisco be guilty of the offence.

Question 2:

Aurelie is a successful ballerina but a promising career has been cut short by a serious injury to her right knee. She has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in this knee and requires surgery. She attends the Glades Private Hospital for the surgery to be performed by Dr Stephens.

Before being taken to the operating room Aurelie is given a pre-med to relax her. As she is waiting to go into the operating room a nurse checks her details. She is asked which knee is being operated on and in her ‘relaxed' state points to her left knee.

The nurse places a cross on this knee with a coloured pen. Dr Stephens operates on Aurelie's left knee and finds a perfectly intact cruciate ligament.

He then operates on and repairs Aurelie's right knee. When she awakes she is horrified to find that she cannot move either leg. Advise Aurelie.
