Actor Russell Brand is asking UK to change its approach to drugs

A recovering alcoholic and heroin addict, Brand was at a UK hearing recently about illicit drug policies.

He believes people should be treated for the disease rather than penalized and in some cases put in jail.

Brand was charged numerous times during his period of addiction.

Is he correct in thinking we should get addicts help rather than charge them and put them into our criminal justice system?

Will be interesting to see how the British government responds.
