Description
The world is facing a crisis which affects every country on earth ... use and trafficking of illicit drugs.

Positive alternatives are needed to destroy this circle of dependency and addiction. The video shows how the UN is helping farmers in Colombia to build new schools and health centres as a reward for switching from coca plantations to other crops. Border control officers on the Balkan Highway in Yugoslavia use high tech equipment to stop heroin traffickers entering the Western European market. Drug addicts in the South Bronx in New York City give up on crack after only two weeks of acupuncture treatment.
