Nicola Sturgeon accused of 'de-facto decriminalisation' of drugs in Scotland as police are told people with heroin, crystal meth and crack cocaine should be let off with a warning

Scotland effectively decriminalised drugs yesterday in a major shake-up of policing.

Officers will now be advised to issue only a ‘recorded police warning’ to anyone they catch in possession of illicit substances, including Class A heroin and cocaine.

SNP ministers were accused of ‘waving the white flag’ and of forcing the change through by the ‘back door’.
