Does James Bond support legalisation?

I recently watched the film Layer Cake, a Matthew Vaughn directed movie from 2004, starring Daniel Craig. It's a 3-star convoluted story about backstabbing drug dealers.

What's really interesting though is the opening sequence (the first two minutes) that shows Craig walking through a pharmacists talking about how one day all drugs will be legal; but for now prohibition creates the opportunity for crims to make billions. Take a look at the video below. It's a legalisation monologue with the highest production values we're ever likely to see. Note the FCUK logo on the bottles of cocaine. The executive producer of the movie is Stephen Marks - Founder/Chairman of French Connection. Interesting product placement...
