Deaths, Drugs and Duties

Rogers, J; (2009) Deaths, Drugs and Duties. Archbold News (6) pp. 6-9.

I argued that the Court of Appeal in R v Evans erred in holding that a drug supplier may owe a duty of care to a person who falls ill after voluntarily consuming the drug. I argue that legislation in this area is necessary, since the application of traditional criminal justice doctrine in this area has proved problematic and will naturally tend to overlook morally important distinctions such as whether the supplier is motivated by profit.
