Dr Christian Jessen talks drugs harm reduction

“I ask this: can anyone point to a single instance where banning a potentially harmful substance has actually reduced the harm to both the users and society at large? I can’t…

“We should also be considering alternatives to outright criminalisation. Prohibition did not work, and making drugs illegal has not worked. Drugs expert Professor David Nutt argues the case for legal drugs like mephedrone, ecstasy and cannabis, to reducing the undoubted harms of drug taking, and I agree with him.” – Dr Christian Jessen
