Is sharing controlled drugs with my friends illegal?

Yes. Passing drugs among friends constitutes a supplying offence (drug dealing). Allowing your house or premises to be used for drug misuse is also illegal. A conviction under the Misuse of Drugs Act may affect future employment prospects and many countries refuse visas to people with drug convictions. Misuse can invalidate insurance policies, including holiday, vehicle and health cover.
