Anderson blames ganja for youth suicides

With the funeral of a nephew who took his own life fresh in her mind,
MLA Alison Anderson in last night's Legislative Assembly debates asked
for a breakdown of statistics on suicide in the Northern Territory. She
wants to see what the picture is in urban, rural and remote settings,
suspecting that, from her experience, young people in remote communities
are more vulnerable.

The nephew buried last week in Mutitjulu was the second in Ms
Anderson's family to suicide this winter. The second young man took his
life in a suburban street of  Alice Springs. He was buried in
Hermannsburg on the same day as his father, who Ms Anderson says died
from alcoholism. PICTURE ABOVE: MLA Alison
