The Journey of Drug Policy Reform: Anyone's Child
A very special episode recorded on the parliamentary estate at Portcullis House in Westminster. We're joined by a panel of parliamentarians and members from the incredible campaign group, Anyone's Child. We're talking about the journey of drug policy reform:
Anyone's Child members are walking the Thames Pathway all the way to Westminster - a day of mass lobbying is to take place on June 25th. This podcast was made to give multiple perspectives as to why we need urgent drug law reform in efforts to save lives. Joining us for this discussion are two members from Anyone's Child:
Anne-Marie Cockburn - We remember Martha, Anne-Marie's teenage daughter who sadly passed away from complications relating to MDMA
Raychel Lewis - We remember Kevin, Raychel's soulmate. Kevin suffered with mental health and addiction. He passed away due to overdose
And joining the discussion we have:
Baroness Meacher - Crossbencher in the House of Lords
Crispin Blunt - Conservative MP
Thangam Debbonaire - Labour MP
Ronnie Cowan - SNP MP
You'll also hear Jane Slater who is the project manager for Anyone's Child.
