|DAVID Cameron was yesterday branded"irresponsible"for saying ecstasy should be downgraded.|
The Tory leadership front- runner said it was senseless to put the currently Class A drug in the same bracket as heroin.
He said it should follow cannabis in being reclassified to make warnings more credible.
Home Secretary Charles Clarke said: "There is still much to learn about the harm ecstasy can cause. We believe it would be irresponsible to consider reclassifying it."
Cameron, 39, responded: "Frankly I do not care what other people think about it."
His comments came on the day leadership ballots were sent to 300,000 Tory party members
