Cara Lavan
Film maker

After working as a documentary film maker for some years, Cara set up the Know Drugs project with the intention of 'bringing honesty into the conversation about drugs'.

She filmed interviews with judges, politicians, recreational drug users, medics, psychologists, drug addicts, prohibitionists and non-drug users for the project and organised a ground-breaking conference on Envisioning a Post Prohibition World in 2011. She also makes all the films for the Anyone's Child campaign - families who want safer drug controls.
