Big names to debate drugs

OXFORD: Daily Mail columnist Peter Hitchens and drug smuggler turned campaigner Howard Marks go head-to-head at Waterstones tonight.

Mr Hitchens claims in his new book The War We Never Fought: The British Establishment’s Surrender to Drugs that the war on drugs never started and Mr Marks will counter the argument.

Tickets are £4 or £2 with a Waterstones Loyalty Card. The debate starts at 7pm at the store in Broad Street.
