Orders of the Day — Isle of Man (Customs) Bill. (24 Jul 1925)

Dr Thomas Shiels: ...of substances to which this Measure applies. Even as it stands it seems to me that there are some omissions in connection with this Schedule. For instance, the United States pharmacopoeia requires cannabis and its preparations, and recommends digitalis and supra-renal extract to be standardised according—

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drugs (8 Dec 1955)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: ...of the Economic and Social Council, which recommended the banning of heroin, also urged governments to prohibit the manufacture, import and export of ketobemidone, and urged countries in which cannabis preparations are still being used to explore the possibility of discontinuing their use as rapidly as possible. Ketobemidone, which I am informed is an exceptionally addicting synthetic...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule (27 Nov 1963)

As to the drug traffic, in Cannabis or Indian hemp, or being in possession of dangerous drugs, more than 50 per cent, of the convictions have been of Commonwealth immigrants. Now, however, we have a book recently published by F. H. McClintock, Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, and Assistant Director of Research in the Institute of Criminology, entitled Crimes of Violence, in which he...

Orders of the Day — Drug Addiction (3 Aug 1966)

Miss Alice Bacon: .... The figures I have given of convictions under the 1964 Act show that the police have taken vigilant action under this Act. Last year the police and the Customs seized over 1,000 kgs. of cannabis—Indian hemp—and there were 614 convictions for illegal possession. We have established at Scotland Yard a Dangerous Drugs Squad. More officers have been added to the squad and, if necessary,...

Orders of the Day — Drugs (30 Jan 1967)

Mr William Deedes: the interdepartmental report, to underrate the importance of the part played in this matter by so-called "soft" drugs—the barbiturates and amphetamines—and, in a different category, cannabis, or marijuana, to which we have to add the form of hallusinogens, LSD25. Beyond question, the misuse of amphetamine in the first group, and to some extent cannabis in the second, is rife, and...

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Drugs Bill (6 Apr 1967)

Mr William Deedes: ...young people at parties to find drugs, some of which their elders treat as a staple diet. The posture against the young becomes morally untenable. That brings me to the difficult matter of cannabis, or marijuana. It is being strongly urged that enforcement under this Bill is weakened by the inclusion of marijuana or cannabis on the list of dangerous drugs. A great many people besides...

Soft Drugs (28 Jul 1967)

Mr Paul Channon: ...There is no case for a change in the law with regard to hallucinogens, but the law will be difficult to enforce. Much the most difficult and controversial topic at the moment is the use of cannabis or marijuana by young people. This is where the law is most widely flouted. I would like hon. Members to ask themselves, first, why these drugs are taken. In every generation there is a wish to...

New Clause "B". — (Further Powers to Search and Obtain Evidence.) (23 Oct 1967)

Mr Paul Channon: ..., it takes power to search people if they are suspected of having soft drugs. I raise no objection to that, but in that context can we be told when we are likely to have the report on L.S.D. and cannabis of the Sub-Committee of the Advisory Committee on Drug Dependence? If the police are to have and are to use these powers, it is extremely important that they should be backed up by an...

Drug Addicts (Notification) (20 Feb 1968)

Mr Henry Brewis: Is it not an offence to take cannabis, marijuana? Surely it should equally be an offence to take heroin without the question of addiction coming into force?

Orders of the Day — Police (Search Warrants) (19 Mar 1968)

Mr Dick Taverne: ...received information from a known informant, not from an anonymous one, and, moreover, an informant whose information had been relied on in the past, that a group of people were trafficking in cannabis and using it. Further inquiries were made to check the information, and what further information became available tended to support it. As a result, a number of search warrants were applied...

Dangerous Drugs (Supply to Addicts) (6 May 1968)

Mr William Deedes: ..., most people put the drug problem in roughly three fields—first, narcotics, with which the Regulations deal, second the hallucinogens, which have nothing to do with the Regulations, L.S.D. and cannabis, for example, and, third, the barbiturates and amphetamines, the soft drugs, with which I think we may deal under the Regulations. The Minister knows that it is on the last of these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Dangerous Drugs (16 May 1968)

Mr James Callaghan: ...the law relating to possession of drugs. I shall consider the need for legislation when this review is complete and I have also received the report of the Advisory Committee on Drug Dependence on cannabis.

Schools (Dangerous Drugs) (31 May 1968)

Mr William Deedes: ...that the number involved must be reckoned —I am weighing my words carefully— in thousands; that is to say, those with access to or some experience of "pep" pills and/or "reefers", which means cannabis. The teaching profession, many of whom are deeply troubled by this, has been ready to do what is required, but it is a much more complex business than many of them have yet been able to...

Orders of the Day — Medicines Bill: Clause 59 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Eric Ogden: to be thought that anything said last week or today suggested that Liverpool is now becoming a sort of Tangier of the North-West, and that we are having imports of hard drugs such as hashish, cannabis, and so on, simply because Eire and Northern Ireland have been mentioned. Liverpool is the principal port for trade between them and this country, and I should like to make it clear that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: University of Sussex (Proscribed Drugs) (4 Jul 1968)

Mr Elystan Morgan: ...liability under the dangerous drugs laws. The need for legislation will be considered when this review is complete and also when the report of the Advisory Committee on Drug Dependance, concerning cannabis, is received.

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Acts Continued Till End of December 1969 (13 Nov 1968)

Mr William Deedes: ...are damaging because they convey to the public mind a lack of effective control. The more vigilant the police are in chasing these people up, or as vigilant as they are in chasing up those smoking cannabis, the better it will be: we shall be doing all right. On dependants I am willing to accept that in the present year, when we are talking about 42,000 of them, no great inroads will be...

Cannabis (Advisory Committee's Report)

Orders of the Day — Shipbuilding Industry Bill (23 Jan 1969)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: ...important Bill. I am sorry that the importance of the topic has not attracted a larger audience. On Monday, it will be quite different; a large number of hon. Members will be present to discuss cannabis; but I do not want to raise that topic this afternoon. My only comment is that perhaps we have the higher quality, and there I leave it. The hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mr. David Pries), in...
