UK Ministers to Block Law against 'Headshops'
Date:7/15/2013

ister keeps saying we are leading the world on legal highs - that is something of a sick joke. The Home Office is not even in the lead in the United Kingdom, with Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland Governments showing they are determined to make positive interventions through public health campaigns and education programmes.

"The Westminster Government have already abandoned drugs education, now they are blocking the law, which would stop the rapidly growing trade of legal highs in headshops. There are now more legal substances out there than illegal ones. The Government is being wilfully deaf, dumb and blind over legal highs. Young people are taking massive risks with these unknown, untested substances - they can buy these drugs on the high street easier than they can buy beer."

Notes to Editors:

1) Maryon Stewart lost her daughter, Hester, to GBL in 2009 and established the Angelus Foundation. It is the only drugs charity dedicated to combating legal highs and club drugs and launched a national campaign in October including the website http://www.whynotfindout.org. There is also a site for families http://www.angelusfoundation.com.

2) An amendment (New Clause 2, tabled 20 June) to the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill to be debated in Parliament on 16 July intends to stop high street sellers of legal highs from trading in New Psychoactive Substances (NPS). Jo Swinson MP, Minister for Consumer Protection at Department for Business Innovation and Skills wrote to the Angelus Foundation on 3 July and said legislation against headshops was, "not needed".

3) The UN Office and Drugs and Crime last month estimated the numbers of young people in UK (aged 15-24) who have taken a legal high as 670,000 (or 8.2 percent) - the highes
