Plea to face 'reality' of drug use

Speakers Jane Slater from TRANSFORM, and Island resident Ray Lakeman

Large audience for meeting on drug policy

Reforming the Island's drug policy was the focus of a meeting by the Positive Action Group in Douglas last night.

Around 90 members of the public heard a talk by Jane Slater, from the UK pressure group TRANSFORM.

Ms Slater says it's not a case of simply relaxing the law on drugs:

Port St Mary man Ray Lakeman lost his sons Jacques and Torin to a drug overdose in 2014.

He says it's time for a practical approach to drug use.
