Asked what the Prime Minister thought of the Conservative’s attack on the Government’s drug policy in light of the views of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), the PMS said that he would not respond specifically to the comments from the Conservative spokesman. As ACPO had said in their statement, should the decision be taken to reclassify cannabis to class B, they would expect to see increased robust enforcement activity. As such the PMS was not sure that the Guardian story this morning necessarily stood up in light of ACPO’s response. ACPO, in their evidence to the advisory committee, recommended restoring cannabis to class B. They both called for it and said today that they would step up their enforcement.

Asked if there would be an increase in enforcement activity in Scotland, the PMS said that we expected the police to take whatever action they felt necessary in light of any change that may or may not be made to the classification of cannabis.
