Drugs, Students & House-Mates

  • I do not take illegal drugs so I have no need for concern - right? Wrong? If you share accommodation with others, students, professionals, benefit recipients, etc do you imagine your innocence will protect you completely? Do you know if they are taking drugs? Or, you may be aware but consider it is their life to do with as they please.
  • Police are entitled to break down the door to any house suspected of containing illegal drugs and to search the property and its occupants (regardless of innocence) for drugs, including conducting internal body cavity searches.  Still think it is ok to ignore your drug-taking housemate... ?
