Self-Administering a Prohibited Drug

Self-administering a prohibited drug is an offence under section 12 of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985, which carries a maximum penalty of 2 years in prison.

To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you administered, or attempted to administer, a prohibited drug to yourself.

You are not guilty if the prohibited drug had been lawfully prescribed or lawfully supplied to you.

Duress and necessity are defences to the charge.
