Britain is a Nation of Under-informed Secret Drug Users

The Yahoo & YouGov deep-dive into very British behaviours is back. Join data journalist Victoria Waldersee from YouGov, along with the Head of News at Yahoo UK, Stuart Henderson, and editor Matilda Long as they unpack statistics around the theme of British drug habits with Ian Hamilton, addiction expert and researcher at York University.

  • How many of us would take Class-A drugs if they were legal? (Sniff, sniff.)
  • Would we try micro-dosing? (That's a teeny-tiny Acid trip.)
  • How do we feel about the legalisation of cannabis? (The Scots seem to like it.)
