The survey, by the magazine Legal Business, also says that there is evidence of “cocaine clubs” in law firms’ basements and of partner-led games of poker and taking cocaine with clients. But it also finds that law firms are ignorant or indifferent to the problem. One lawyer is quoted: “I spanked £100,000 on cocaine in one year and no one noticed.”
What they are not talking about though, is the endemic misery the drugs trade causes among the least privileged. I heard just last week, how middle-class drugs money distorts behaviour on the most run-down estates.
Time for a change of heart?
