Is Herbal Incense Illegal for Soldiers?

#1
It is legal out in civvy street but I was wondering if its against military law to smoke it? Im not a drug addict and hate drugs but dont mind smoking herbal incense, just need this cleared up because i start basic soon and if its traceable and or not allowed in the british army then ill stop smoking it, thanks.

Yes. It is illegal whilst you are a member of the Armed Forces to misuse any substance, including solvents or even legally available things like 'Pro Plus' (though I have yet to hear of anyone being done for that).

Ethanhunt,

Your brother is a low-life piece-of-shit and you can tell himI said so. With luck he will get the electric chair.

I doubt that it is illegal. If it is not listed as a prohibited drug ( as are marijuana, LSD, opiates, cocaine etc.,) then there is nothing illegal about possession or use.

I did an army first aid course during which we learned a bit about drug abuse; the instructor made a comment to the effect that we had to learn this because it was in the syllabus but that we should not expect to see the use of illegal drugs in the British Army (bear in mind it was long, long ago); in his experience only two drugs caused any medical problems in the army and they were alcohol and tobacco.

While I was at Defence School of twattery Leconfield I was interviewed over being an alleged drugs baron.
My massive haul of contriband? One unopened packet of Pro Plus (with NAAFI price tag still attached IIRC)
The result? Half a day of not being in the worlds most boring lecture on antenna theory, my pro plus being returned to me and some half mumbled apologies about "being wrong, but you can't be too careful"

That's because you're not supposed to crush the pro plus and snort them through a rolled up crisp 20.

Perhaps it was mixing them with cocaine and LSD that cause the problems? Though I blame the invisible talking aardvarks.

The JSP says

"Service personnel subject to Service Law are forbidden to use
solvents, glues, gases, fuels, varnishes or any other substance, preparation or liquid,
for the purpose of inducing any intoxicating, stupefying or hallucinatory effects."

So that would include Herbal Incense, providing you smoked it to produce an intoxicating, stupefying or hallucinatory effect. If you are smoking it just to make your breath smell nice I suggest a packet of polo mints would be safer.

So can we therefore get rid of PowerPoint?

Official MOD line - Smoking polo mints is perfectly safe.
