A British Look At South America

Moving from country to country in South America, reporting from across the drugs frontline and interviewing top-level international politicians this film exposes the human cost of one of the most popular drugs on the London streets.

This documentary covers so many grounds. I think it starts from a false premise (the idea that the war on drugs started in 1971 rather than decades earlier) but the areas it explores are incredible -- the farmers, the Mexican police, users in London... I think Americans hear a lot about the drug problems that arise between America and South America, but rarely hear how Europe factors in.

The "human cost" is important, because while American drug problems are worth worrying about, the effects on Mexicans and Bolivians and Colombians is also worth worrying about -- these are the folks who have gun battles in the streets over drug trafficking, whereas the streets of America are comparatively safe.
