Misuse of Drugs (Designation) Order 2017 – S.I. No. 174 of 2017
Sections 4 (2) and 5 (2) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 as amended, require provision to be made in Regulations to allow the use for medical purposes of the drugs specified in the Schedule to the Act.
That obligation is removed, however, in the case of any such drug which is designated by order under section 13 of the Act as a drug to which that section is to apply. This Order designates for that purpose the drugs specified in the Schedule to the Order since it would not be in the public interest that they
should be so available.
