The first documentary to look in depth at the effects of cannabis on mental health, this film was made in conjunction with the Institute of Psychiatry research programme and the Maudsley NHS Trust high security psychiatric wards. Inpatients tell their stories as well as teenagers who smoke heavily, unaware of any possible long term affects.
