Cannabis – What’s The Harm? with James Alexandrou
Cannabis – What’s The Harm? is presented by ex-EastEnders actor James Alexandrou.
With access to the Avon and Somerset police force’s drug squads and the Borders Agency, this two-part series looks at both the dealers and users and talks to the UK’s top doctors and psychologists about the effects of cannabis.
Former EastEnders star Alexandrou (Martin Fowler) explores the hidden world of organised crime linked to the supply of marijuana in Britain. He joins a drug squad and the UK Border Agency as they try to catch smugglers, and meets casualties of the trade, including a 14-year-old addict with convictions for burglary and a Vietnamese teenager smuggled into the country to work on cannabis farms.
