The Government should listen to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs on issues of drug policy and not interfere in its affairs. Drugs policy should be based on scientific evidence and facts rather than politics.
Note: This isn't the same as calling for legalisation of any or all drugs. This is about the Government listening to experts in the field instead of putting people at risk by ignoring advice for the sake of votes.
Why does this idea matter?
Drug policy is a high priority public health issue. It affects a significant proportion of the UK's population, particularly youth. Improperly decided drug policy will cause deaths.
