Drugs: Misuse

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what research her Department has (a) commissioned and (b) evaluated on the effect of reclassifying drugs on their production, supply and use. (159832)

The Home Department undertakes and evaluates several surveys in order to monitor levels of illegal drug production, supply and use. These are not predicated on the ABC classification system but where they are drug specific, any changes are closely monitored following a drug’s reclassification. Relevant published research is also routinely considered.
