Our Drugs War

8:00pm Monday, August 2 on C4

Our Drugs War examines the global story of drugs from the streets of Edinburgh to the poppy fields of Afghanistan: from demand and consumption to supply. Everyone’s at It turns the spotlight on Britain, where one in five citizens have used class-A drugs. Focusing on Scotland – named by the UN as Europe’s drug capital – film-maker Angus Macqueen visits an Edinburgh estate with two former users, now volunteers for anti-drug charity Crew. Angus also speaks to former government drugs advisor Professor David Nutt, who was famously sacked when he suggested that present policy is not based on scientific evidence.
