The renowned scientist Professor David Nutt sits down with Joss to talk about the chemicals in our brain, and the drugs that affect them. He’s not just talking about the legal ones either! A true maverick, he was fired as chief advisor on drugs for the Labour after arguing that drugs legislation is not based on science, and has been on a crusade to get society to have a rethink ever since.
