Louise Mensch's ‘incredible regrets’ over drug use

Conservative MP Louise Mensch says she regrets "incredibly" that she used Class A drugs in her youth, saying they had a long-term mental health impact and have made her more anxious.

Speaking on Question Time after Home Secretary Ken Clarke said the UK was losing the war on drugs, the Conservative MP said she was against legalisation of drugs, as other young people would be exposed to them and "lives destroyed".
