§ Mr. Lipton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs will next meet to discuss the laws relating to cannabis; and when it is likely to report.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The Advisory Council's Working Group on Cannabis has already met to consider this matter and will meet again in March. The group is unlikely to report its findings to the council before the legal issues arising in the case of Reginav. Goodchild are finally resolved.
