Background

The ACMD is a statutory and non-executive non-departmental public body, established by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. The ACMD has a statutory duty to keep under review the situation in the United Kingdom with respect to the misuse of drugs and to advise ministers of the measures which they consider should to be taken to deal with social problems which arise from drug misuse.

In addition, the ACMD has a duty to consider any matter relating to drug dependence or misuse that may be referred to them by Ministers. The Home Secretary is obliged by law to consult the ACMD before laying orders or making regulations.
