Policy on drug misuse is already devolved to the Scottish Government. Scotland’s drug strategy, The Road to Recovery, has led the way in tackling drug problems and has received international acclaim for its positive focus on care, treatment and recovery. Drug taking in the general population is falling and drug taking among young people is at the lowest level in a decade. With independence, responsibility for legislation on the classification of illegal drugs will also become the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament.
