Drug misuse harms the health and well-being of too many people, the aim is to reduce the number misusing illegal and other harmful drugs and increase the number who successfully recover from drug dependence and to restrict the supply of drugs by identifying and prosecuting those involved in the drug trade, and confiscating the proceeds of crime.
Drugs included in the dataset are currently controlled under the misuse of drugs legislation showing their respective classifications under both the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (MDA) and the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 (MDR).
Although it is extensive, the list is not exhaustive and, in the event of a substance not being listed below, reference should also be made to the published Act and Regulations at legislation.gov.uk, specifically Parts I, II, III and IV of Schedule 2 to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and in Schedules 1 to 5 to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001.
