Former F1 driver Eddie Irvine

An anti-drugs campaigner has criticised Eddie Irvine after the motor racing legend backed the legalisation of drugs and welcomed the release from prison of a notorious Pablo Escobar associate.

Northern Irish multi-millionaire Irvine recently posted a picture on Instagram of Colombian cocaine king Escobar alongside fellow drug lord, and Eddie's neighbour on the Caribbean island of Norman's Cay, Carlos Lehder.

The picture carried the caption: "Good to see my neighbour just got released from federal prison. #carloslehder #normanscay . #exuma legalise drugs then we won't have drug smugglers. "
