Independent review of drugs: terms of reference

Terms of reference relating to the independent review of drugs led by Professor Dame Carol Black.



In October, the Home Secretary announced that there would be a major independent review of drug misuse, building on the work under way since the government’s drug strategy was published in 2017.

Professor Dame Carol Black has been asked by the government to lead the review which will look at a wide range of issues, including the system of support and enforcement around drug misuse, in order to inform the consideration of what more can be done to tackle drug harms.
