The Home Office has not received representations on this matter. However, the Government is clear that cocaine is a harmful drug and we remain absolutely committed to reducing its supply and use. The first part of Professor Dame Carol Black’s independent review of drugs, published on 27 February, sets out the evidence on trends around the supply and use of cocaine.
