Drugs, Smoking, Solvents & Alcohol

Before the Watershed

  • The use of illegal drugs, drug abuse, smoking, solvent abuse and the misuse of alcohol must never be condoned, encouraged or glamorised and scenes showing such material should generally be avoided unless there is editorial justification. They must not be featured in children's programmes unless there is strong editorial justification.

After the Watershed

  • These activities should not be condoned, encouraged or glamorised in programmes likely to be widely seen by under 18s unless there is editorial justification.
