Keira MP Ryan Park is calling on the NSW Government to release the final report from the Ice Inquiry, rather than letting it "gather dust".
Mr Park, Labor's health spokesman, said the report from the Special Commission of Inquiry into the Drug 'Ice' was handed to the government on January 28.
The 14-month inquiry received more than 250 submissions and held a number of public and private hearings - including in Nowra and five other regional areas where the use of the drug is seen to be a problem.
Mr Park said the Berejiklian government needed to release the report "immediately" and outline how its recommendations would be implemented - particularly in areas like the South Coast where it was wrecking lives.
"Unfortunately we know from the submissions made and the evidence that was heard when the Inquiry came to Nowra just how big a problem this is for communities up and down the coast," Mr Park said.
"Ice was quickly catching up to alcohol as the most common drug that local health workers provided treatment for and that in itself should send alarm bells to any government.
"Our local community desperately needs to have the findings from this expert inquiry released so we can get a better idea just how big of a problem this is and then more importantly look at funding the services needed to both prevent and treat those impacted by this awful drug."
Mr Park said the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the St Vincent's Hospital drug and alcohol specialists had also called for the report to be made public, stating there was "no excuse" for the delay.
"Every day people are dying from ice yet the Liberals and Nationals are letting this report gather dust," he said.
In closing submissions last October, counsel assisting the inquiry recommended an urgent increase in funding for specialist drug and alcohol services, as well as the removal of sniffer dogs at music festivals and a trial of medically supervised pill testing.
They also recommended that a whole-of-government alcohol and other drugs policy be developed, one that recognised the use of drugs as a "health and social issue".
Counsel concluded that while NSW was once a world leader in drug policy, the state had slipped backwards with gains made from the 1999 Drug Summit having stalled, or disappeared entirely.
"We know this Premier does not listen to the experts when it comes to drug policy," Mr Park said.
"Communities all across NSW are seeing the consequences of this government's failure to address a growing ice problem.
"Families are suffering from a growing ice problem and the Liberals and Nationals are sitting on potential solutions.
"Every day that the government fails to release this report is a day wasted and a missed opportunity to act."
A NSW Government spokesperson would not confirm when the report would be released, stating only that an initial response to it would be released publicly in the "near future".
