'No' to LSD law change
The Government's given a blunt no to proposals to soften the classification of LSD under our drug laws.
The Expert Advisory Committee on Drugs had been looking at the move to reclassify LSD as a Class B or Class C substance. Official documents show the committee felt LSD was inappropriately classified, based on evidence of risk of harm.
But Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne says he has met with the committee and made it clear the government has absolutely no interest in pursuing the matter. He says the arguments for change were theoretical and were not agreed on by the full committee.
LSD is lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as acid and is a semisynthetic psychedelic drug of the ergoline and tryptamine families.
