Plenary Day 2: Statement from the UK

The UK delegation states that it is currently refreshing its national drug policy, and one of the key achievements is to move to a recovery-based approach.

In the last 2 years the delegation states that they have seen the threat of legal highs and that they pose a challenge to them. Since January 2011 the UK has identified 12 new substances, and have established new forensic systems to analyse these new substances. They stress the need to educate potential users of these substances; especially young people and they will shortly be publishing a new psychoactive substance action plan.
