Interview with Professor David Nutt about UK drugs policy

It is clear from his responses about current UK drugs policy that he thinks we should be moving towards a Portuguese style decriminalisation system in the UK too. I think it is very significant for such a recent government drugs advisor to be advocating this. They can't go on ignoring the evidence forever...
