BBC Newsnight host believes drugs are a greater problem among gay men

[BBC Newsnight host Evan Davis] who has always been candid about his own sexuality, said homosexuals were more prone to destructive behaviour

… He was said to have described drug taking as ‘socially infectious’ among the gay community and said it was not helped by their slightly greater disposable income.

… ‘Once gay people start taking drugs, they’ll take more drugs because it’s socially infectious and one person will take them, then another. I just think it’s something gay people have to watch out for.’

… Davis[‘s] comments come after the British Crime Survey found drug use among gay and bisexual men was three times higher than for straight men and was higher in the majority of individual drugs consumed including cocaine, ecstasy, amphetamines and cannabis
