Bereaved father to voice support for legalising drugs

A father whose two sons died after taking ecstasy is calling for drugs to be legalised and regulated on the Isle of Man.

Ray Lakeman will speak at a Positive Action Group question and answer session this evening.

Jacques and Torin Lakeman died during a trip to England in 2014 after taking a lethal dose of the drug, which the brothers purchased on the dark web.

Mr Lakeman will explain why he wants to see changes to drug legislation, while Jane Slater from the Anyone's Child Campaign will also give her view.

The meeting takes place from 7.30pm at the Manx Legion Club in Douglas.
