Text of the Drug Trafficking Offences Act 1986 as in force today (including any amendments) within the United Kingdom, from legislation.gov.uk

The Drug Trafficking Offences Act 1986 was the first act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom specifically dealing with laundering the proceeds of drug trafficking. The legislation was enacted as a direct response to the failure of the courts' power making it impossible under the law, as it stood, to confiscate some £750,000 of drug trafficking proceeds which were traced directly to the offenders.

It was largely repealed and replaced by the Drug Trafficking Act 1994.
