As part of this Conservative government’s Anti-Social Behaviour Plan, those in unlawful possession of nitrous oxide could face up to two years in prison, or an unlimited fine.
Nitrous Oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is one of the most commonly used recreational drugs by 16 to 24-year-olds. Not only can laughing gas result in serious health consequences, but the harms are also felt acutely in our communities from littering of discarded canisters to drug driving.
Whilst there are legitimate uses for nitrous oxide in many sectors, including medical, industrial and catering, it is important that those using nitrous oxide for legitimate purposes can do so lawfully and without undue burdens.
Our Plan includes making the streets of Esher and Walton constituency safer. You can read more here.
