      Since the demise of Franco, young Spaniards have gathered spontaneously in large groups to drink in public spaces. The phenomenon is known as 'botellón' and the record number for such a gathering is 15 000 in Granada. Recently, however, authorities have clamped down and young people are being fined 300 Euros for drinking in public. Some Spaniards see this as an attack on personal freedoms while others struggle to pay for expensive drinks in bars. The compromise is to be relegated to a car park on the edge of the city...moreless

    • Skunk smokers 18 times more likely to develop psychosis
      That 'sticky-icky' you might have been smoking could make you eighteen times more likely to develop psychosis, compared to those who only smoke hashish. Dr. Marta Di Forti of Kings College London conducted the research into skunk use and found rather alarming results. 80% of people who had experienced psychosis - delusions and paranoia - had smoked some hi-grade, compared to 76% of people who had no mental health problem who had smoked hash.moreless
    • Ketamine Is For Horses

      I went out in Bristol to see what drugs were available and being used today, I found that Ketamin was amongst the most common, one of the cheapest and with some of the most intense and scary effects. After finding it's actually intended to be used as a horse tranquilizer, I took ketamin user 'Gruff' to a vetinary surgery to witness what effects a similar amount of Ketamin has on a horse. I just want to make it very clear that the horse was already scheduled for an operation (to remove a testicle) by the very well-respected Equine surgery who were kind enough to let me film it. The operation procedure was in no way influenced by the pod, the operation was sucessful and the horse made a full recovery.moreless

    • Tripping in Amsterdam

      'Sara's house' is a business in Holland run by Sara Glatt - self proclaimed "Iboga Mother" offering a safe place for 'natural trips' and shamanic drug rituals. Her title, Iboga Mother refers to the drug Ibogaine, which is commonly used in her residence for the treatment of drug addiction. An Ibogaine trip is compared with a waking dream, in which "childhood emories flicker through the mind like movies", but is not the only drug available on the menu. Sara has 5 kids (from 5 to 17), and grows peyote in one greenhouse (her 15 yr old son in charge of two nine-foot Cannabis plants in the other). Although drug addicts seek treatment at Sara's house and can often be cured of their addiction, the business also actively promotes the 'Day Trippers' visiting for that alternative holiday in their heads. Over the course of a week, we follow the progress of regulars and first timers looking to kick their habit, alongside the family developments and a business struggling to survive. People travel from all over the world to see Sara, as she is often seen as their last chance to deal with their addiction, but they often bring baggage into the house in terms of violent behaviour. Within the rural setting of her household, we discover a number of characters, and their personal journeys and stories of addiction, and often abuse. Set in rural Holland, the chaotic household reflects a struggling family business campaigning for the positive effects of natural drugs alongside the jarring imagery of a 'family' business consumed by them. Sara offers a convincing argument for the widespread usage of natural highs, but what sort of example will their own family model portray?moreless

      They don't drink, don't smoke and don't take drugs. Most are under 25. And, strangely, this is not a load of geeks, these are hardcore music fans. It started with a bunch of punk style bands. 'Minor Threat' wrote this song and a name was given to what would become a movement. "I'm a person just like you But I've got better things to do Than sit around and fuck my head Hang out with the living dead Snort white shit up my nose Pass out at the shows I've got the straight edge" They didn't know what they were doing. They just knew they didn't like what was going on around them - and the kids followed in droves. We meet 3 straight edgers in the UK to find out what it's all about and why - at a time when binge drinking and drug use is at an all time high - they've got the straight edge.moreless
