Following on from my post about securing a debate on the reclassification of Mamba and Spice, and my video on YouTube, I thought I'd provide an update on how the debate went.
The Minister, Nick Hurd, responded positively to my debate and I'm pleased that the Government is listening. He said that the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs and the Home Office are both launching reviews on this issue as he feels that things have moved on since they were first looked at back in 2014.
I'm looking forward to continuing to raise this with him. I'll be holding Government's feet to the fire on this and ensuring that we see a proactive response both in terms of the legal side of this, and of course in support and preventative services too!
