Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation
The National Assembly for Wales’ Health and Social Care Committee undertook an inquiry into new psychoactive substances.
To note: New psychoactive substances (often referred to as “legal highs”) are drugs which have been synthesised to mimic the effects of illegal drugs and which are sought for intoxicant use. Because they are newly created, they are not automatically controlled under drugs legislation (in the UK, the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971). The term may also include substances of herbal origin (“herbal highs”).
The consultation has now closed.
