Its Time For A Scottish Drugs Commission

Commenting on the annual drug statistics which showed that cocaine and crack use as well as methadone prescribing rates have increased, SNP Drugs Spokesperson Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

"The Labour and Lib Dem governments short term fixes on Scotland's drugs problems have failed which is why it's time for a long term solution. A Scottish drugs commission could help achieve this by considering and reaching a Scottish consensus on action to be taken.

"Drugs are a plague on our communities which is why next year an SNP Government will also prioritise rehabilitation and counselling services for those with addictions, ensure there is adequate teacher training on drugs awareness for schools throughout Scotland and importantly, we will tackle the root cause of many drugs addictions, social deprivation."
