Recreational users face being stripped of their passports and driving licences under new curbs unveiled today. They also face receiving text messages from police if their numbers are found on dealers’ phones. Writing in the Daily Mail today, Priti Patel warns that repeat offenders could even be placed on home curfews. Speaking in Liverpool this morning Mr Johnson also vowed to get ‘very tough’ on so-called ‘county lines’ gangs taking drugs from urban areas into more affluent parts of the country. ‘What we’re also saying is we’re not going to sit idly by when you have lifestyle users also using Class A drugs, and we’re going to be coming down tougher on them,’ he said.
