More than a third of MSPs think Scotland's drug policies are working despite a record number of drug deaths last year, a survey suggests.
About 35% of MSPs surveyed by the independent UK Drugs Policy Commission (UKDPC) think Scotland's policies are effective in tackling the problem of illegal drugs.
Despite the much lower death toll in England and Wales, just 17% of Westminster MPs have faith in the wider UK drugs policy.
While 60% of MSPs said Scotland's drug policies are ineffective in tackling substance misuse, many could not decide on a solution beyond more devolution.
Just over a quarter (27%) thought Scotland should decriminalise the possession of small quantities of drugs for personal use. Over half of MSPs (51%) disagreed, but a sizeable number (19%) were unable to make their mind up either way.
The same percentage of MSPs could not decide whether more evidence and research was needed, with 70% saying yes, 10% saying no and 19% saying they did not know.
There were 584 drugs deaths in Scotland last year, amounting to 11 deaths for every 100,000 people north of the border.
This compares with 2652 drugs death in England and Wales, amounting to under five deaths per 100,000 people.
UKDPC surveyed 150 MPs, 55 MSPs and 31 Welsh Assembly Members in June this year with its research published over the weekend.
