26 Nov Paul Flynn MP Questions Norman Baker, Drugs Minister

Paul Flynn MP Paul Flynn MP

Paul Flynn: “To become drugs minister do you have to undergo a lobotomy to remove from your brain all your previous views about drugs?”

Norman Baker: “Had I had a lobotomy I wouldn’t be able to answer that question.”

Paul Flynn: “Your views were that the police were wasting their time on chasing after people using drugs like cannabis. Is that still your view? …Do you still believe in legalising cannabis which you once did?”

Norman Baker: “I think it needs to be considered along with anything else but that’s not my prime objective and I’m not advocating it at this particular moment.”
