Earlier this month, we found ourselves at odds with Sir Richard Branson. You see, not long after publishing a blog post outlining the dangers that smoking skunk can pose to teenagers, the Virgin supremo made comments that left us staggered.

Young people need hope. Young people need vision. Young people need drive. Young people need aspirations. Young people need to take risks from time to time. To aim high. To try hard.
