Anyone’s Child held an event in Parliament following our action on the 26th June entitled ‘What Next for UK Drug Policy’. The event was hosted by Crispin Blunt MP (Conservative) and Jeff Smith MP (Labour).
“Now no responsible parent want’s to think of their child taking drugs. But I believe that if Martha had taken something that was legally regulated, labelled with recommended dosage and a list of ingredients, she would not have swallowed enough for five to ten people and she’d still be alive today” – Anne-Marie Cockburn.
“When my Grandchildren are older I’d prefer them not to use drugs. But if they do, I want it to be without going to unsafe environments. Without risking a criminal record, or worse. Without their families feeling fear and shame. And with truthful drugs education, and by choosing safely produced and labelled products from regulated outlets. That’s why I joined Anyone’s Child” – Rose Humphries.
