We recently reported that a Poppers ban would come into force from April 6th as part of the Psychoactive Substances Act. We are pleased to announce that thanks to an assessment by the advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) alkyl nitrites (poppers) will now not be included in the ban. The announcement by Karen Bradley MP comes after weeks of debate on social media and in the press as to whether the ban was valid given ACMD’s report.
The ACMD wrote to the Home Office with its conclusions, and in the report, dated 16th March 2016, Professor Iversen, said: “In the ACMD’s view, alkyl nitrites (‘poppers’) do not fall within the scope of the current definition of a ‘psychoactive substance’ in the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016. Consequently, the ACMD does not see a need for an exemption under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016.”
Karen Bradley, the Home Office minister for preventing abuse, exploitation and crime has now responded : “Having given due consideration, the government agrees with your advice and interpretation of the definition… Our understanding is that this approach does not have any further implications for the operation of the Act and that other substances that the Act intends to cover are not affected. We remain confident that the psychoactivity of those substances can be established under the definition in the Act. We will ask law enforcement agencies to be guided by our agreement with your advice. Our acceptance of your advice brings to an end the review process we were undertaking in parallel to consider the case for a bespoke exemption for the alkyl nitrites group under the Act on the basis of their beneficial and relationship effects. The process to exempt substances from the Act applies only to substances which meet the Act’s definition… We will ensure that our messaging across government and its agencies is updated.”
