Drugs Policy Working Group - survey

The Drugs Policy Working Group has drawn up a proposed new drugs policy which we hope to be adopted as policy by the Green Party of England and Wales. As part of the consultation of members on the policy, we have devised a brief survey in order to gauge members’ views on some of the potentially more controversial aspects of the policy. We would be grateful if you could answer the following questions and provide brief additional comments. Deadline for completing the survey is midday Wednesday 17 July.

Your feedback is valuable and will help shape the policy and discussion at conference in autumn.

Question Title

* 1. The new policy proposes to regulate alcohol in line with other drugs based on existing evidence. Do you think that current alcohol regulations should be tightened in order to limit the high levels of harm associated with the drug?
