Tackling Scotland’s drugs problem is one of a number of priority areas the Scottish Executive has identified for cross-cutting action across departmental and other organisational boundaries. This broad based approach will embrace all the key areas including treatment, enforcement, rehabilitation, prevention and education as well as the links with the Executive’s wider programme of social reform. A Ministerial Group will ensure a co-ordinated approach on tackling drugs, with integrated policy and integrated policy delivery, focusing on results. Scottish Ministers are committed in principle to the concept of a drugs enforcement agency and discussions are underway with the police about what form it should take.
