On 10th June ketamine changed from a class C to a class B drug. This means that if you’re caught with ketamine you could now get up to 5 years in jail and an unlimited fine. Supplying ketamine to someone else, even your friends, could get you up to 14 years in jail.

A conviction for a drug related offence could make it harder or impossible to visit many countries eg USA, as well as limiting the types of jobs you can apply for.

You can still be unfit to drive the day after using ketamine, as driving while high is illegal.

Also allowing other people to use ketamine (or any other kind of drug) in your house is illegal. If you’re hosting a party where there is drug use, you can be prosecuted.
