Eva Rausing, one of Britain's richest women was found dead in the bedroom of her 70 million pound Belgravia home in London on the 9th of July. The American born 49 year old will be remembered by the world for her drug addiction and her marriage to billionaire heir to the Tetra Pak packaging empire, Hans Kristian Rausing. Does the tragic story of Eva Rausing prove that addiction knows no social class or gender? Or does being a billionaire make you more likely to become a drug addict? Guests: Dr Tim Williams, a Consultant Addiction Psychiatrist; Harry Shapiro, the Director of Communications and Information at Drugscope; the drugs policy analyst at the Centre for Policy Studies, Kathy Gyngell; and Marcus Connolley, which is not his real name, who is a drug dealer and user in London.
