Public views to be collected as part of the illicit drugs review

Thu, 30 Mar 2023

A number of households across the Island have been sent a survey which aims to gather residents’ views on the impact of illegal drugs and how the Island should respond to the issue of drugs.

Around 7,000 randomly selected households have been invited to take part, with the youngest person living in the house (who is aged 18 or over and permanently resident) being asked to complete the survey.

The survey is part of the review of the harms caused by illicit drugs, being undertaken by the Department of Home Affairs, following on from a Tynwald recommendation in December 2020.

The review will be used to inform thinking about drug policy, by providing information about the impact of illicit drug use on both our health and criminal justice systems, as well as gathering public opinion.
