It should be known that the drugs are classified in different categories which attract different penalties, as well as the fact of them being in mere possession or whether they were being supplied.
This categorization is based on how dangerous those drugs are, with category A having the most harmful and dangerous drugs like heroine and cocaine. Class B has drugs that are not as dangerous as the ones in Class A but they are still harmful, for example cannabis. And the last one, Class C drugs are the least dangerous but they are still illegal for example a few tranquilizers.
Class A drugs can have unlimited fine and/or up to 7 years in prison while Class B has an unlimited fine and/or up to 5 years in prison whereas drugs classified in Class C can land up in 2 years in prison and/or unlimited fine. These penalties are only for their possession. If caught supplying the drugs, even to friends of where no money is involved, it has more severe punishments.
If seen supplying or possessing drugs, the London Metropolitan Police should be contacted at 999 for emergency and 101 for non-emergency cases.
If the drugs are being possessed or supplied by a youth (anybody under the age of 18) then the Youth Justice Board should be contacted.
