Goodwill Ambassador for Global Justice for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime on shrooms

Nicolas Cage is the Goodwill Ambassador for Global Justice for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. He goes around supporting the work of the UNODC, who have striven to up hold the United Nations drug control conventions. The actor has been on a mission to Kenya with UNODC chief Antonio Maria Costa were he visited a prison'

It left me wondering how somebody with Cage's 'badboy' image found himself taking up such a role and how would UNODC cope with such a figure representing the information. I guess the power of celebrity is such that this wasn't a consideration

The actors drug use doesn't seem to be a barrier to his work with UNODC, I guess this is in keeping with their new spirit of not encouraging the criminalisation of drug users.
