Greenlit: Does Skunk Make You Crazy? BBC3

Does Skunk Make You Crazy?  w/t (1 x 60′) –  Lifts the lid on cannabis-induced psychosis and asks if this mental health condition is an unintended, man-made consequence of scientific progress and economic efficiency as traditional ‘organic’ cannabis production has moved out of the fields and into the lab, with intensively produced high-grade strains dominating the market. Looking at skunk not as just another illegal recreational drug but as a highly successful market-leader, 23-year-old journalist Jake Hanrahan, who suffered from cannabis-induced psychosis himself at the age of 14, seeks to understand the truth behind the drug young Britain gets high on, in this authored journey. Jake will meet scientists, psychiatrists, cannabis-psychosis sufferers and the families of those who have suffered its consequences. He will examine the research on both sides of the argument and meet the people who manufacture and sell the product to try and find out if this slickly produced, highly potent and ubiquitous drug is really as harmless as its hundreds of thousands of users believe.
