Petition Make it a specific offence to expose a child to any amount of Class A drug
The Government should introduce a specific offence to help stop children passing away with class A drugs in their blood stream. Children are being failed by current legislation, which does not make allowing this to happen a specific offence.
People who were responsible for a child do not necessarily face prosecution even if Class A drugs are found in a child’s blood. We need to focus on the fact that no level is acceptable. Children should be safeguarded from this happening.
