i'm afraid you've made a lot of mistakes on law here first, a person in possession of class A, B or C drugs with intention to supply would be charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 - not the Psychoactive Substances 2016.

you said:
'If however the drug dealer supplied a combination of drugs which they knew would in certainty cause death, then they would merit the charge of murder'. that is factually incorrect; no they would not be charged with murder because they still don't have the mens rea for murder.

you've spent far too much time concentrated on murder when you could have outruled that in one paragraph. you should be focussing on unlawful act manslaughter which is 100 percent relavent and persons supplying drugs have been tried in the past. see R v Kennedy 2007. hope that helps!

Thank you, have been trying to familiarise myself with English law over the past week as I am an international applicant, but notwithstanding the legal inaccuracies how would you rate the structure and line of argument?

Thanks again
