According to new Psychoactive Substances Act 2016, the UK's government announced that new legalisation bans all substances deemed as “psychoactive” drugs excluding controlled drugs such as caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, etc.
According to definition of psychoactive substance, this is any substance which can produce a psychoactive effect in a person who consumes it.
Some shops already withdrawing supplies of nootropics from sale.
Does it means after the Act comes into force, then nootropics (smart drugs or cognitive enhancers) become illegal in the UK? For example racetams such as Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, Noopept, etc., since they're psychostimulants?
