R v Kennedy (No 2) [2007] UKHL 38

The answer to the question ‘When is it appropriate to find someone guilty of manslaughter where that person has been involved in the supply of a class A controlled drug, which is then freely and voluntarily self-administered by the person to whom it was supplied, and the administration of the drug then causes his death?’ was: ‘In a case where the deceased was a fully-informed and responsible adult, never’.”
