Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Report (Continued) (14 Jul 2015)

Baroness Hollins: ...I refer to my interests in the register but make it clear that I am speaking in a personal capacity. As a doctor, I think this amendment provides quite an elegant solution to the clear need to make cannabis available for medicinal purposes. That is the point of it. Such a law could address a need that has been clearly been there for quite some time and could be used to find a solution to a...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Report (14 Jul 2015)

Lord Rosser: ...Commons, 23/6/15; col. 737.] A succession of inspection reports produced by the prisons inspectorate, covering Highpoint, Bristol, Liverpool and Deerbolt prisons among others, has shown high levels of use of synthetic cannabis.

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (30 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...peculiarly difficult to find out what is really going on. The drug scene constantly mutates: you can monitor usage of some particular drugs but you can be pretty sure that if you find that there is a dip in the use of cannabis, it is because there is an increase in the use of ecstasy or whatever. It is very hard to keep track of it. I notice that in the report on new psychoactive...

Mental Health: Young People — Question for Short Debate (30 Jun 2015)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: ...the least likely to engage with existing services. The task force found good examples of workers trained to deliver support in a flexible, approachable and joined-up way to help reach some of the most needy young people. What really brought this to life for me was the case study of Jay, a 17 year-old cannabis dealer involved in gang activity, who was mistrustful of professionals, fearing...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (30 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: .... We ought to aim at that. We should encourage responsible conduct by people who would seek to supply psychoactive substances to the market in this country. There is evidence that many people operating cannabis cafes in the Netherlands for example, particularly because they are under pretty close police and other supervision, take good care to ensure that the products that they offer are...

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...available one substance in each of the three principal classes of drugs. The first would be a stimulant—it might be MDMA, better known as ecstasy. The second would be a depressant, which might be cannabis—the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, spoke of the significance of the ratio of THC to CBD within any individual variety of cannabis. If you have no THC, you have no...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 Jun 2015)

Lord Bates: ...it is possible to license some of these drugs so that they can continue to be tested. We were talking earlier about how universities and research institutions can continue testing on drugs such as cannabis. That is a key point: that testing will go on. I will make sure about that before Report.

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Second Reading (9 Jun 2015)

Lord Winston: ...Imperial College, which is why I did not put my name down to speak. When I was chairman of the Science and Technology Select Committee some years ago, we looked intensively at the medicinal uses of cannabis. One of the pieces of evidence was very compelling and enabled us to think about rather permissive legislation. It was that a number of people who had medical conditions, such as...

Dyfed Powys Police Helicopter (9 Jun 2015)

Mike Penning: ...different roles that the helicopters have. They do everything from rescues—even though other facilities can be called on in this part of the world and in other parts of the country—to tackling organised crime and, in particular, cannabis growing. Hon. Members may not yet have had an opportunity to see some of the videos available from heat-seeking cameras, which help us to know...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (2 Jun 2015)

Lord Patel of Bradford: ...at his feet. Two days earlier, Joe had been held in a police cell overnight on suspicion of drink-driving. Joe was 17. I also spoke of 17 year-old Edward Thornber, who in 2011 was caught with 50p worth of cannabis. Distraught at the thought of life with a criminal record, he hanged himself. Those two children were robbed of their future, and their families robbed of sharing it and seeing...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Peter Lilley: ...alliance with my now dear departed friends in the Liberal Democrat party. I supported a free press against the Leveson attempt to introduce state control of our free media. I have advocated legalising cannabis. However, belief in human rights and civil liberties is not the same as belief in the Human Rights Act or the European declaration of human rights. They are not identical, although...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Psychoactive Substances (18 May 2015)

Basil McCrea: ...attention. All that leads me to conclude that the issue of drug culture in our society is perhaps one that we have to deal with. Even now, there is discussion about whether there are health benefits from cannabis, what exactly the effective ingredients in it are and whether it is something that we should be looking at with regard to medicinal use. The whole issue is about understanding...

Alex Easton: ...those drugs to seek medical help urgently. Currently, 107 different synthetic cannabinoids have been identified across Europe, and potency is hugely variable. They are often a lot stronger than cannabis and may even have completely different effects. In Northern Ireland, the issue of legal highs has received much media attention. However, there is no official recorded information,...
