Matthew Perry debates drug courts with Peter Hitchens – BBC Newsnight



Think-tank Policy Exchange is calling for more drugs courts – on which former addicts might sit as magistrates – in the UK and has met Justice Secretary Chris Grayling to discuss the idea.

They were joined by a delegation from the United States including former addict and actor, Matthew Perry.

He spoke to Newsnight along with journalist Peter Hitchens and Baroness Meacher, who chairs the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy Reform.
