Branson donates £20k to back Clegg on drugs policy

Richard Branson has donated £20,000 towards Nick Clegg’s research into reforming drugs policy around the world.

The billionaire Virgin founder gave the money to Open Reason, a non-for-profit firm the former Liberal Democrat leader set up after leaving office.

Both Mr Branson and Mr Clegg have both called for drugs such as cannabis to be decriminalised because the current laws have “failed”…
