On Monday 4th March, Crew hosted the Scottish Affair Committee media launch of their new drug policy inquiry, Use and Misuse of Drugs in Scotland.
The Committee are hoping to explore “the unique drivers” of drug use in Scotland, the relationship between poverty, deprivation and drug use and what lessons can be learned from other countries. The question of further devolved drug policy in Scotland is also raised in the inquiry.
We welcomed representatives from the UK Home Office,MPs and MSPs, colleagues from Scottish Drugs Forum, Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs, local policy experts and journalists to ask questions about the inquiry.
Submissions to the enquiry are welcomed until the 12th April 2019 – share your views here.
