The Home Office has stated it is ignoring the advice, saying there is no such thing as a “safe dose” of the drug.

Ecstasy was placed in the top Class A bracket alongside heroin and cocaine back in the late 70s, before it was widely available.

It means anyone carrying the drug for personal use can get up to seven years in jail or an unlimited fine, while possession with intent to supply could mean a life sentence.
