Police Chiefs says its a waste of time banning new legal highs

Police Chiefs in the UK have warned the government that banning new legal highs through legislation is a waste of time as the chemist overseas are producing different ones faster than legislation can react meaning the police are wasting lots of time arresting people who's drugs turn out not to be on the banned list.

The Police think a better policy will be to make the sellers of legal highs legally responsible for any harm that comes to the users of the products.  However as they are often marketed as planet food, its seems a difficult proposition. Could a garden center or supermarket be responsible if a customer miss uses a product?  Further hows is harm going to be proven?    The National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths logged 127 suspected deaths in Britain with links to "legal high" drug, mephedrone, over the past two years.  However as none of the logs gave the drug as the cause of death I can see how the seller could be held accountable. It all show the stupidity of the current drug laws.  Why hold sellers responsible.  Treat people as responsible for their own actions and if consequence happen then they only have themselves to blame.....
