The Global Drugs Chain

We're discussing the global drugs chain. From consumer countries, producer countries, and transit countries, the global chain for drugs is wide-ranging, but sometimes the links in the chain are not immediately obvious. We're joined by a great panel to discuss the many overlaps in the global drugs economy and to explain why none of us are free from the impacts and consequences:

And of course your host is Jason Reed. This episode was recorded live at Tottenham Court Road Waterstones in front of an audience.
