(Fixed!) David Nutt – Evidence-based Drug & Alcohol Policy – Skeptics in the Pub

The Struggle for Evidence-Based Drug & Alcohol Policy
9th July 2012
The Head of Steam, Liverpool

A special irregular edition of Skeptics in the Pub, with Professor David Nutt, current Edmond J Safra Chair in Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London.

Professor Nutt was a member of the Committee on Safety of Medicines, and was President of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology but it was during his chairmanship of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) and his refusal to fudge the issue of perceived drug harm that brought him into the public spotlight.

    David Nutt ist just telling the plain and painful truth!
    Use you brain to understand it and accept his expert opinion over your cop storries. (Do not disagree with a medical doctor – we are the smartest and always right!)
    David you are a hero!
    David Nutt keep on going, you are right.

    1) Evidence please?
    2) Any examples for why I should doubt the academic integrity of Prof. Nutt
    3) Why would Labour ministers embarrass themselves for a long term goal that doesn't matter to them?
    4) Many MPs receive funding from the drinks lobbyists so in fact want the opposite of what you suggest.

    Don't try to flaunt your anecdotal information talked about down the pub as a fact.

    It really is sad that politics aren't based on scientific evidence. We should protest and literally throw out of office any politician who refuses to listen to science on issues as important as these ones. They called it a war on drug, maybe we should stand up to them and fight back.
