Columnist and author Peter Hitchens demolishes the arguments for liberalising legislation on drugs and offers a brilliant critique of the cannabis lobby and its intellectual and moral shallowness.
Uncovering the secret history of the government's true attitude, and the increasing recruitment of the police and courts to covert decriminalisation initiatives, Hitchens contrasts it with the rhetoric. Whatever and whoever is to blame for the undoubted mess of Britain's drug policy, it is not 'prohibition' or a 'war on drugs', for neither exists.
Hitchen’s book The War We Never Fought published by Bloomsbury will be available to buy at the talk.
