Since the 1930s the war on drugs has raged producing international organized crime syndicates, prison systems and corruption at every turn, amongst a multitude of negative socio-econmic impacts, Meanwhile those at the frontline, the drug addicts, have only increased every year the was had been fought. Interviews with Neil Pike, Teresa Biscoe, Dr James Alexander, Michael Baulderstone, Andrew Kavasilas, Lucy Haslam, Ruth Birgin, David Shoebridge

Continuing on from Episode 3, we hear from locals about how Nimbin has developed into an activist community and how it's often misrepresented in mainstream media. Including interviews with permaculture pioneer, Robyn Francis, psychologist Dr James Alexander and Hemp activist Michael Baulderstone

This episode traces the history of Nimbin and it’s rise from dying dairy town to the third most popular tourist destination in its home state of New South Wales. Including interviews with local musician, Neil Pike and others about how the town has changed and discover its ongoing role as an example of effective alternative living.

In this episode we explore the uses of this versatile plant and track its journey throughout history. From the steppes of Central Asia to the streets of Nimbin.

We track the start of prohibition and its rise to global policy - all based on the assertions of one man - the "Father of Prohibition", Harry Anslinger. When Harry was made the first chief of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics he inherited a department that had just had its budget slashed. It appeared to Harry that there may be a chance his office would follow the way of alcohol prohibition and be shut down. So what do you do when faced with the prospect of losing your job?
