Speaking at a Labour leadership debate in Glasgow last week, Corbyn said he would decriminalise cannabis for medical purposes, but that he did not support legalising recreational drugs, The Mirror reported.
“I would decriminalise medicinal uses of cannabis,” Corbyn said, adding that there “has to be an intelligent approach to this” and that he doesn’t take any drugs himself.
In a tweet on Friday, Nutt, who has held many senior drugs roles and is now a chair in Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College, London, said: “At last some common sense from Labour on drug policy. About time the Brown legacy dispatched.”
