Q - Hi, I Was Wondering If You Could Shed Any Light On The Legality Of Ephedrine In The Uk. What Would Be The Results Of Getting Caught With The Substance,

A - Ephedrine is not itself a controlled drug in the UK, so small amounts would not attract any penalty.

However, if sold as an unlicensed preparation (e.g. as 'legal high') the seller would risk prosecution under the medicines act.

Large quantities may attract separate penalties as it is a precursor chemical for manufacture of other controlled drugs, controlled under international treaties.
