UK film censor takes softer view on drugs

Screen Daily report:

The British Board of Film Classification has revised its guidelines to allow references to drugs in ‘U’ rated films, if they are ‘infrequent and innocuous’. In the past such reference would have earned a film a ‘PG’ classification.

The body has, however, also decided that solvent abuse is a classification issue and such scenes are unlikely to be passed in a ‘15’ rated film.
