Home Office
Drugs: Decriminalisation
To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have, if any, to review their policy on illegal drugs, following the decriminalisation of such drugs in many jurisdictions including parts of North and South America.
Answered on: 08 October 2019

The Government has no plans to legalise illicit drugs. There is a substantial body of scientific and medical evidence to show that controlled drugs are harmful and can damage people's mental and physical health.
