Drugs & Alcohol

The Liberal Democrats believe that,

  • Any drug that is less harmful than alcohol or tobacco, such as cannabis, should be fully legalised.
  • Personal use of all drugs should be decriminalised, and the focus should shift from law enforcement and criminality to harm prevention and treatment.

To that end, we will;

  • Fully legalise soft drugs, using an evidence and research-based approach.
  • Decriminalize all drugs and shift the focus of regulation from an issue of crime and punishment to one of health and harm prevention.
  • Ensure that laws regarding underage use, driving and use in public are strong and enforced.
