Motion: Legal Highs

Proposed:

That this Assembly expresses concern at the open sale of psychoactive substances known as "legal highs" which are being sold under false pretences, by using disclaimers such as "not fit for human consumption", when in reality young people are becoming addicted to them; notes the damage such substances cause to the lives of young people; and calls on the Minister of Justice to bring forward proposals, including pursuing emergency legislation, to restrict the sale of these substances.
