MPs back legalisation 'road map'

PUBLISHED October 13, 2004

MPs, peers and former police officers are to back the publication today of the first ever report outlining a "detailed road map" to the legalisation of drugs in Britain.

The report from the drugs policy think-tank Transform, argues that by 2020 most drug users will no longer buy from unregulated dealers but obtain drugs from specialist pharmacists or licensed retailers, with prescription drugs available for those who can prove clinical need.
