Q.1140

Prof. David Nutt is a British pharmacologist who was once the Chief Drugs Advisor to the United Kingdom government. He was rather unceremoniously dismissed from this post after disagreements over policies over 'harmful drugs' (he had called for reclassifying drugs based on scientific evidence rather than beliefs about their effects).

In 2013, Nutt was awarded the second "John Maddox Prize for Standing Up for Science". This award is named after John Maddox, who was the long-serving editor of which famed journal?
