This year marks 50 years since the introduction of the Misuse of Drugs Act. It’s high time we reviewed this act and brought in the reforms we have needed for so long.
I will be monitoring this issue closely, with particular attention to the impact of this policy on young black people.
You can watch my speech here or read it here.
I spoke last week on the #MisuseofDrugsAct, calling for a major review & reform of this outdated legislation.
As @TransformDrugs say – 50 years of this policy is #50YearsofFailure.
Because of the MDA, young people who are victims of exploitation get treated like criminals. 👇🏾 pic.twitter.com/KGLhjejeYN
