In February this year, the Law Commission released a 400 page discussion document reviewing the 1975 Misuse of Drugs Act. The Commission is inviting submissions on this document (until the end of April).
Law Commissioner Warren Young will present a brief summary of the review, to be followed by a panel discussion. The panellists from disciplines of Law, Sociology and Economics have all made scholarly contributions in the area of drug policy.
