Jonny Ross-Tatum

East Ambassador


Jonny Ross-Tatam is a passionate advocate for drug reform. This passion has grown since becoming a primary school teacher in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, where he has seen how failed drug policies have affected some members of the local community. Before teaching, Jonny was the co-founder and President of the Buchanan Institute, where he authored a report calling for an approach to drug policy that sees drug addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal issue. He is also the former President of the Edinburgh University Students' Association and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) think tank.
