26th November 2019 | The Devonshire

Over the past six decades, the changing British attitude to drugs has created the greatest criminal opportunity in the history of this country.

Neil Woods spent fourteen years infiltrating drug gangs as an undercover police officer – befriending and gaining the trust of some of the most violent, unpredictable criminals in Britain. With the insight that can only come from having fought on its front lines, Neil came to see the true futility of the War on Drugs – that it demonises those who need help, and only empowers the very worst elements in society.

This 26 November, the former undercover police officer turned best selling author is at Salon London to piece together the terrifying complexity of the drug war in Britain. Understand how Britain succumbed to a self-defeating war on drugs, the hidden role the US plays and the better solutions and the valuable lessons that can be learnt from our lost history. Truly fascinating.
