Lib dems to debate drug inquiry

5th August 2011

The Liberal Democrats are set to debate calls for a government-backed inquiry into the decriminalisation of drugs at their annual conference next month.

Some delegates want more emphasis put on the treatment rather than the prosecution of drug users and the move could become party policy if it wins enough support at the conference in Birmingham. The motion will urge the government to set up an expert panel to consider the decriminalisation of personal drug use and believes current drugs laws are harmful and ineffective.
