The UK’s current laws on drugs are both outdated and harmful.

Each year, criminal gangs generate billions of pounds from the illegal drug trade1 –money which in turn funds organised crime2. And each year thousands of people receive convictions for drug possession3 which will harm their education and employment prospects for the rest of their lives. At the same time, the UK is spending billions fighting a losing battle on drug use, and countless police hours are spent targeting people carrying small amounts for personal use - hours which could be better used going after more serious criminals. Both the financial and human cost is vast. This desperately needs to change.
