Parliament and Controversial Aspects of Drug Misuse and Control
A good deal of time was devoted in the 1970–71 Parliamentary session to consideration of the Misuse of Drugs Bill by the House of Commons and the House of Lords, each House considering it both as a unitary body and in committee. Most of the controversial aspects of drug misuse were debated, and a summary of what was said about the more important of them is given here. This account is in no sense exhaustive, but it does provide reasonably up-to-date information on a wide range of major drug topics, and it does indicate the Parliamentary thinking that lies behind the Act.
