More than three-quarters of MPs believe the UK’s drug policies are not working, according to a poll for a respected commission poised to deliver a landmark report assessing the evidence for continued prohibition.
The poll’s publication comes ahead of the release of several major reports into the future of UK drug policy that will ensure the debate about reforming the country’s laws becomes a key issue for MPs for the rest of the year.
The poll, conducted by ComRes for the UK Drug Policy Commission (UKDPC), found that 77% of MPs believed the UK’s current policies were ineffective in tackling the problems caused by illegal drugs.
