Responding to the Scottish Office announcement, setting up a new
School Drugs Safety Team, David Henderson, head of policy development, said: 'COSLA announced last week that it was establishing a new Scottish Local Government Drugs Forum to co-ordinate action across all local government services, including education.
'We also called on the government to refocus and strengthen the
Advisory Committee on Drugs Misuse (SACDM).
'It will be important to ensure that the work of the new School Drugs
Safety Team fits fully into that framework.'
