4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Queensland prisoners testing positive to drugs has doubled since last year
Experts say Queensland has the nation's worst access to drug treatment programs,
and the ABC has obtained figures showing desperate prisoners are smuggling in buprenorphine, which, like methadone, is used to treat drug dependence.
Drug dogs in jails across the state are currently being trained to sniff out the buprenorphine, which comes in a thin clear patch and is easy to conceal.
Queensland is the only state that doesn’t offer opiate substitution treatment or harm reduction programs in male prisons, even though estimates show there’s more than 80% of the prisoners using drugs prior to their incarceration.
