Mick Jagger once suggested legalising all drugs in the Isle of Man, as a litmus test for the rest of the UK.

“In England, they always try out new mobile phones in the Isle of Man,” said the former Rolling Stones frontman in 2010. “They’ve got a captive society. So I said… you should try the legalisation of all drugs on the Isle of Man and see what happens.”
