Decriminalise drugs says Labour peer Robert Winston
Labour peer Robert Winston said there was a "strong case" for the decriminalisation of drugs, arguing that the policy of prohibition used around the world was not working.
He said: "Maybe we should be looking a bit more bravely at drug usage".
Prof Winston spoke after comedian Russell Brand told MPs that taking drugs should not be seen as a "criminal or judicial matter" and users should be shown more compassion.
