The Guardian reports that:

Cannabis use among young people has fallen significantly since its controversial reclassification in 2004, according to the latest British Crime Survey figures published today. The Home Office figures showed the proportion of 16 to 24-year-olds who had used cannabis in the past year fell from 25% when the change in the law was introduced to 21% in 2006/07.

Unfortunately the same report suggests that cocaine use there appears to be on the rise…

  1. I’d be interested to know where they get reliable figures for what is an illegal act in the UK.

    I can’t see people honestly answering a survey on the issue. Very hard to link correlation and cause on this one.

    (and I come from the legalise and regulate all drugs based on harm camp)
