Eliza Manningham Buller

Former Head of MI5

"Given its effects on us all and the enormous cost of our efforts to limit the problems which drugs cause, I find it extraordinary that [drug policy] is not at the forefront of national debate. Instead there is a presumption that the current policy is the best we can do. And there is knee-jerk opposition to any change... It is fairly clear that you do quite well if you have decriminalisation. That is one of the policies that we feel should be looked at."
