This month we have a follow-up to our chat with Prof David Nutt in the form of a full-length interview with Mike Trace, who is chair of the International Drug Policy Consortium and has acted as an advisor to the Global Commission on Drug Policy. Certainly worth a glance.

Imogen de Cordova interviews Ras G in our music section, eliciting some pretty enigmatic answers from the mysterious LA producer. Also worth a read this month is João Paulo Simões’ piece on digital distribution in our Filmreel section.

We are hoping to start a new food section in Now Then. If you are interested in contributing recipes, reviews and rants about Sheffield nosh, contact me at sam@ nowthenmagazine.com. You don’t have to be a fivestar chef or a professional writer, as long as you have a passion for the edible.
