An MP has demanded reform of the UK’s “plainly failing” drugs laws in the wake of a new BBC documentary.
Bristol MP Thangam Debbonaire used Prime Minister’s Questions to call for a Royal Commission to deal with the “catastrophic impact” of drugs.
The Bristol West MP called on UK prime minister Theresa May to watch “Drugsland,” which investigates that city’s drug culture.
The documentary series looks at addiction, dealing, treatment, and policing of illegal drugs in Bristol, England and focuses on an area of Ms Debbonaire’s constituency.
