Drugs Live: Cannabis on Trial

Channel 4 at 10:00pm (Other show times...)

Drugs Live: Cannabis on Trial

Last year cannabis was smoked by two million people in the UK, making it the most commonly used illicit drug. Around a third of 16 to 24-year-olds have tried it. But cannabis has changed a lot in recent years. 'Skunk' is a potent form of cannabis that now dominates 80% of the British market. Some believe it is far more addictive than other forms of cannabis and can provoke paranoid episodes, psychotic symptoms and memory loss.

In Drugs Live: Cannabis on Trial, volunteers - including Jon Snow, Matthew Parris and Jennie Bond - will be seen taking part in a ground-breaking scientific trial looking at the effects on the brain of two different forms of cannabis - 'skunk' and 'hash'. Another volunteer will be going through the trial live in the studio.
