"The Psychoactive Substances Act 2016 comes into force on the 6th April 2016 and having made a telephone call this evening I am informed that poppers are still on the banned list, despite whatever the papers today are saying. In this Act “psychoactive substance” means any substance which—
1. is capable of producing a psychoactive effect in a person who consumes it, and
2. is not an exempted substance (see section 3).
3. For the purposes of this Act a substance produces a psychoactive effect in a person if, by stimulating or depressing the person’s central nervous system, it affects the person’s mental functioning or emotional state; and references to a substance’s psychoactive effects are to be read accordingly.
4. For the purposes of this Act,a person consumes a substance if the person causes or allows the substance, or fumes given off by the substance, to enter the person’s body in any way.
There is to be a review on poppers and if there is to be a change, this change can be done through a Statutory Instrument; this allows the Secretary of State through provisions of an Act of Parliament to be brought into force or altered without Parliament having to pass a new Act. Through various agencies The Home Office is minded to look urgently at this………..so Mr Purvy you may still be able to get your poppers but would suggest you wait to hear the news when the Government publishing’s the list after April 6th 2016
