One PRO who was having his own drug-related legal conundrum this week was sustainability agency Futerra's director, Ed Gillespie, who is currently circumnavigating the world without flying.

Entering Japan on a Chinese slow boat, Gillespie had in his possession gifts of a large pink sausage, a knobbly cucumber and a small heart-shaped cushion.

Admitting in his Guardian blog that Freudian symbolism could be read into his cargo, Gillespie was nevertheless dismayed when customs officers confiscated said gifts after finding a picture of the intrepid PRO standing in a ganja field and deciding he couldn't be trusted.
