Illegal drugs are the disease on our society that rob so many families, communities and retail businesses of their dignity, creative talent and pride. Maintaining a drug free pub is not an easy task for bar owners when in fairness the majority of drugs taken in bars is done in the toilet cubicles which are traditionally the most private place in your premises. But clearly publicans have a responsibility in this area and if they are not seen to be taking the proper preventative measures, their licence could be at risk.
