Mick Jagger’s drugs charge appeal upheld, 1967 – British Pathé video

As the Rolling Stones mark the 50th anniversary of their first gig, we present archive newsreel footage from 1967 of Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull arriving at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Jagger and Keith Richards – who had chicken pox, so did not appear in court – had been charged with possession of marijuana. The appeal was upheld and their convictions quashed.
