Charlie Falconer – 2022 Comments on His Appointment as Chair of London Drugs Commission

The comments made by Charlie Falconer, the Chair of the London Drugs Commission, on 12 May 2022.

I’m honoured to have been appointed chair of the London Drugs Commission. It is a real opportunity for there to be a thorough look at the effectiveness of our drugs laws and policy on cannabis. We need rigorously to identify what is the best approach to reduce harm to our communities. A national debate is long overdue. We aim to make recommendations to bring about effective and lasting change.
