In the second episode of Cannabis: What’s the Harm, James explores the hidden world of organised crime linked to the supply of cannabis in the UK , following a police drug squad and the UK Border Agency as they target gangs and smugglers.
He meets the casualties of the drugs trade, including a 14-year-old addict who has convictions for burglary to fund his habit and a Vietnamese teenager smuggled into Britain by lorry to work in British cannabis farms to supply the huge demand.
Ex-EastEnders star James Alexandrou was caught smoking cannabis by the tabloids when he left the soap. Now he wants to find out the truth about the most popular illegal drug in Britain, see the lengths people will go to get it and discover exactly where it comes from.
