A MAJOR anti-drugs festival taking place in Edinburgh this week is being backed by a controversial quasi-religious organisation.

The Say No to Drugs Festival has attracted high-profile sponsorship from the Church of Scientology which counts celebrities such as John Travolta and Lisa Marie Presley among its members.

But the festival has been criticised by leading councillors and churches, who say scientologists are not the best people to be associated with the two-day event.
