Perhaps most importantly it doesn’t treat the viewer like a moron with the attention span of an ant, there no annoying “yoof” presentation, no stupid camera techniques, this is an intelligent presentation.
It seems they simply don’t want to look at the real chaos they’ve caused, instead hoping to try to convince the public that the problem is people not obeying the prohibition law, rather than accepting that the situation is caused by that law. This programme by the BBC was a part of that deception attempt.
Two media outlets not normally associated with presenting a complex view of the world had a go at doing just that this week – BBC 3 and The Sun!
Better than some of the rubbish we’ve seen maybe, but still a long way from being good.
This week saw the introduction of the 2010 drugs strategy; anyone hoping for a significant change of direction from the prohibition regime will be disappointed but not surprised.
