Cannabis, ket and speed to be ‘decriminalised in London’ by Sadiq Khan
The Metro says The mayor of London is reportedly planning to end the prosecution of young people caught with cannabis by decriminalising certain drugs in the capital.
Sadiq Khan is set to roll out a new scheme which will allow people under 25 caught with Class B drugs to be offered speeding course-style classes or counselling, the Telegraph reports.
The London boroughs of Lewisham, Greenwich and Bexley will reportedly be part of the initial scheme.
Police officers will be told not to arrest young people caught with drugs including cannabis, ketamine and speed.
