Petition Make it a specific criminal offence to supply drugs to children under 16

I want to see a change in the law to make clear that any person under the age of 16 cannot consent to taking illegal substances. This will have a two pronged effect in keeping young people safe but also holding those who supply accountable for death and serious injury as a result.

More details

On 11/5/19 I lost my beautiful daughter. Leah went out with her friends that night She experimented with MDMA, which killed her. I got a call to say she isn’t well, shortly after I got there Leah took her last breath. The 2 boys found guilty of supplying MDMA that night got 21 months and 12 months, the max sentence under current law. only serving 6 months each. It’s illegal to by alcohol/cigarettes and to consent to sex under 16, there must be more safety measures against drugs been offered to children.
