Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie has appeared on national television begging for her ice-addicted son to come home.
Earlier on Monday, the independent senator gave a moving speech about her 21-year-old son's struggle with methamphetamine, also known as ice.
Jacqui Lambie said the bill proposed by social services minister Scott Morrison would discriminate against people who are not necessarily in control of their actions.
