A hidden effect of the War on Drugs - people across the world are unable to get medicines they actually need.
From delays in access and research into cannabis-based medicines to driving a street-valium crisis in Scotland to critical pain-relief shortages across the global south, we explore how the War on Drugs impacts the medical world, causing massive, unnecessary suffering along the way.

For half a century, prohibition has been causing chaos and misery worldwide. Any attempt to shut down the drugs trade invariably sets off a chain of events that just makes things worse, leaving a trail of death, illness, violence, slavery, addiction, crime and inequality across the globe. The War On Drugs is a war in which everyone loses - except, in a weird kind of way, the drugs themselves.

It's such a relief to see people recognize the truly positive benefits of cannabis. People shouldn't be shamed for taking a safe medicine that helps them and makes them happier. Cannabis did for me what prozac never could and that's a fact

This is the best documentary that I've ever seen. Plainly and logically lays out the hypocrisy of our current system. This will be changed in coming years worldwide. Country after country have started legalising its use. When you say it aloud "This is a plant that has multiple uses, but we aren't allowed to legally grow it... " it sounds pretty laughable. But you can make home-brew alcohol, and consume alcohol even in restaurants and it's almost encouraged "A glass of wine a day is good for health" 5 years, maybe 10 tops until it's legal almost everywhere, and its looked at as stupidly as the prohibition years of alchohol back in the 1920-30's. "Remember when growing a plant was illegal, haha! They were so stupid". Thanks VICE for being on the right side of history and fighting a tough fight, but that is full of integrity and humanity. It's really appreciated.

Heartbreaking to watch. This was horrible but it exposed some harsh realities. Our governments across the world, irrespective of left or right, are evil, and they and the folk who truly believe that our governments care for us and want the best for us will quickly realise that history will not be favourable to them. My heart goes out to those needlessly suffering. I would not wish this kind of suffering on even my worst enemy.

Uhm.... Uk is the biggest exporter for cannabis - of what? The UK? The world's biggest exporter is actually Canada. In terms of... Canada is bigger than the UK. And they also produce more than the uk^^. And then they export it. UK or Great Britain... Only produces the most amount which then gets turned into an extract with a ton of chemicals... And then export the product called sativex. Do you're homework kid. Cheers

Medically I approve 100% even though I do not like, nor smoke it, it helps millions!... But be warned, the weed being sold on the street (at least in Philadelphia) is often dusted with fentanyl!.. Sick, isn't it?.. Get it from a trusted and legal source like a dispensary or someone who u really trust!.. Medical Marijuana covers so many disorders are covered, so talk to your Dr or simply google what ailments are covered!!..
