Before his sacking from Advisory Council On The Misuse of Drugs, David Nutt and the committee suggested that a classification for new/little researched drugs were should be created. Class D drugs would be regulated (e.g. sold only to over 18s) and their supply and usage monitored to assess their potential harm.

The alternatives are to take a cautious approach and ban them outright, or leave them unregulated.

The drug classification system in the UK is divided into A (e.g. heroine Ecstasy), B (Amphetamines, Cannabis) and C (GHB, Ketamine). Higher grades correspond to increased punishment for possession and supplying and (supposedly) a higher risk of harm for the substance.  Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Would you support a Class D classification for drugs (or an equivalent)?

I'm not familiar with the UK drug control system, so I don't really understand the question.

You're saying that Cannabis has a higher punishment than heroin in the UK? That's kind of hard to believe.

I think you misread that.

Higher in the same sense as school grades, A is the top (i.e., is considered the 'worst' class of drugs).
