Government pledges to ban sale of laughing gas

THE sale of laughing gas will be banned under plans to tackle anti-social behaviour, Michael Gove has announced reports the BBC.

The levelling up secretary told the BBC nitrous oxide can have a “damaging effect on young brains” and its public use can lead to “greater lawlessness”.

The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) recently advised against new laws to ban nitrous oxide.

Nitrous oxide, sold in metal canisters, is known as NOS and is the second most-used drug by UK 16 to 24-year-olds.
