Sir Richard Branson urges change to drugs law - UK

Sir Richard Branson has urged the government to take responsibility for drugs policy away from the Home Office and treat misuse as a "health issue".

The entrepreneur told the Commons home affairs committee this could bring a fall in use, saying such a policy had worked in Portugal and other countries.

He said Prime Minister David Cameron had to be "brave" over the issue.

But Sir Richard added: "I would not advocate heroin and cocaine to be sold in supermarkets."

1. Richard Branson will also never be busted for drugs.

I'm sure if he had never used drugs he would've lived up to his full potential and been a trillionaire.
