It is difficult to keep abreast of the latest innovations in drug law and new initiatives to deal with drug-using offenders. When detailed legal information is sought, government and legal sources are sometimes unclear and some sources may even contradict each other.
If we are to have a sensible debate about drugs and the law and make reforms that help to reduce drug-related harm, a first step is to understand the nature of current laws and how people are actually being dealt with when they break the law. This information is also vital if we are to work effectively with drug users and to support them if they fall foul of the law. It is also important for people who work with drug users to protect themselves by being clear about the legal parameters they work within and the legal constraints and obligations they face.
This booklet aims to bring together information about drugs and the law, using language that can be easily understood. rather than legal jargon.
The booklet has been written by Julian Cohen, a freelance drug educator, trainer and writer with 20 years experience in the field - and validated by a range of legal experts.
