These are all the drugs that most people think should be legal

A recent YouGov survey has uncovered which drugs the British public think should be legalised.

The survey comes after MPs banned poppers as part of the government’s Psychoactive Substances Bill on Wednesday.

Here are the drugs Brits want legalised, in order of popularity:

Cannabis - 39 per cent

A staggering 38 per cent of us want cannabis legalised, and we bet 80 per cent of them are your Facebook friends.

Poppers - 28 per cent

Just under a third think poppers are poppin' (although, erm, probably not in those words).

Ecstasy - 17 per cent

Significantly less of us are in favour of legalising ecstasy, most likely because it would render Very British Problems non-existent.

LSD, Cocaine, Anabolic Steroids - 15 per cent

But not all at once.

Amphetamines - 14 per cent

We're not here to judge, but we are.

Heroin - 13 per cent

This is why we can't have nice things.

However, 48 per cent of people voted that absolutely none of these drugs should be legal at all and 11 per cent shrugged "not sure" from over the top of their cup of tea.
