Publicans in Nottingham are stamping their anti-drug message on beermats in a bid to keep drugs out of licensed premises.
The new beermats and posters - which warn that drug taking is illegal and will not be tolerated on licensed premises - are part of a campaign to clear up confusion after the proposed reclassification of cannabis.
Police are working closely with licensees on the initiative. Howard Roberts, assistant chief constable of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "It is vitally important that we get the message to young people that the use of cannabis will remain illegal."
