The U.K. Government is to ban the drugs BZP and GBL which have been linked to a number of deaths. The drugs are to be classified as class C carrying prison terms of up to two years for possession and 14 years for dealing. BZP is also known as 'herbal Ecstasy' and GBL is taken as a substitute for the 'date rape' drug GHB which is already illegal. The Government also clamped down on man-made cannabinoids - known as Spice - making them, like cannabis itself, class B drugs.
