UK: Recreational drug users could have passports and driving licences confiscated under new plans in government crackdown

Home Secretary Priti Patel says the move shows the government is “cracking down on drug use” which is “a scourge across society”.

Recreational drug users in England and Wales could have their passports and driving licences seized under new proposals announced by the government.

The latest crackdown on drug use in society would also see casual users of cocaine and cannabis facing fines and having to attend drug courses.

The government says the tougher penalties would help tackle the “scourge” of substance abuse in society.

It comes as recent statistics show over three million people in England and Wales in 2019/20 reported using drugs in the last year.

The proposals have been published in a white paper entitled “Swift, Certain, Tough. New Consequences for Drug Possession”.

The escalating tougher penalties that recreational drugs users in England and Wales could face include:

• First-time offenders required to pay for and attend a drug awareness course
