When Tom met Ron.
Pictured is Tom Lloyd, retired police chief constable, international drug policy adviser and Chair of the National Cannabis Coalition, who advocates legal regulation of all drugs. Tom has joined forces with VolteFace to create our ‘Roving Reporter Series’.
Yesterday we travelled to Durham with Tom to meet a very important figure in the world of policing, a man whose influence can be felt in the drug policy reform movement – Ron Hogg, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham. Hogg was a fantastic host and a fascinating character – one VolteFace and Tom will be filling you in on more over the coming weeks and months.
All-in-all, the 7 hours on trains between King’s Cross, London and Durham were worth it to pick Hogg’s mind, and Durham is beautiful albeit with a bit of a February chill in the air.
