LJMU Faculty of Health Public Lecture Series

Professor David Nutt

Why current drugs policies do more harm than good.

Wednesday 18th March 2024 @ 16:30

Drug policies in the UK are largely based on the false premise that prohibition works. This talk will explain how they have developed piecemeal over the past century driven by political expediency, moralistic pressures particularly from the USA and media demands.

In the inaugural session of LJMU’s Faculty of Health Lecture series, Professor David Nutt (Imperial College London) will demonstrate how in most cases prohibition has led to greater harms to users and greater costs to society and argue for a radical overhaul by the next government.
