Richard Branson drugs policy advice to David Cameron


Sir Richard Branson said politicians should ignore newspapers like the Daily Mail, and reform the UK drug laws.

The Virgin group boss said David Cameron had appeared to agree with him 10 years ago - while a backbench MP - and now had to be "brave as prime minister and has to do what is right for the country".

He had appeared before the Commons home affairs committee to say a different approach to drug use in other countries had led to a fall in use.
