    Legal high drug ban is 'a priority'

    The decision to ban 'legal high' drugs is an 'absolute priority' and will be made next month, home secretary Alan Johnson said yesterday. Evidence about the drugs - including mephedrone - is being gathered by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, which will make a recommendation to the government in early March. 'It is a priority for them, they are moving as quickly as they can,' insisted Mr Johnson.

    Ripped it out but I don't have a camera to take a photo to post and I can't find the article on their website.

    I fail to see how banning 'legal highs' is even possible. Surely they can only ban individual drugs, unless they bring in analogue laws?

    They don't mean banning every legal intoxicant, I believe the primary focus is mephedrone, and the UK does already have analogue laws such as in the case of cannabinoids and phenathylamines, it is likely when the ban does come into place it will be an analogue law covering all beta ketones.
