Under legislation outlined in the Queen’s Speech on 29th May 2015, a draft bill to “ban” research chems was presented to the House of Lords. The psychoactive substances bill is designed to ban the trade.
“The Home Office impact assessment published alongside the bill reveals there is no existing test that the police can use to confirm if a seized substance qualifies under the ban as psychoactive. Home Office scientific researchers and the government’s advisory council for the misuse of drugs have been asked to tackle the problem of finding an accepted methodology for a testing kit.”
According to David Nutt, former government Chief Drugs Adviser, the banning has already been destructive to Parkinson’s and anti-smoking research. What’s more, drug researchers have warned that a bill to ban will be terrible for brain research in the UK. You can read more about this here.
The ban is likely to come into play around April 2016. So what was all that fuss and urgency about? A year is a very long time and there is still a lot of partying to be done!

Converting a bill to a complete “Act of Parliament” takes a long time, even in straightforward cases. But a complicated bill like this one will take even longer because of considerable opposition, lots of research and avoiding loopholes plus heavy modification. Nothing is changing in the short term and with no severe urgency.
According to the data below from The Guardian, the popularity of legal highs certainly isn’t in decline and people are still getting their fixes to this date.
