HC Deb 22 January 1990 vol 165 c577W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he is taking concerning the smoking of the herb catnip.

Mr. Mellor

I have been asked to reply.

None. The herb catnip is not a controlled drug and I am not aware of any evidence to suggest that it gives rise to such harmful effects that it ought to be considered for control under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
