The Scottish government has called for the decriminalisation of all drugs for personal use.
It wants the UK government to change the laws to allow people to be “treated and supported rather than criminalised and excluded”.
However it would still be an offence to have possession of drugs with the intention of supplying them to others.
The government also wants the law to be changed to allow the introduction of supervised drug consumption facilities.
Drugs laws are currently reserved to Westminster.
However, the Scottish government has responsibility for health and social policies around drug consumption.
Other proposals from the Scottish government include more substance checking services and increased access to emergency treatments for drug overdoses.
