The film features drug policy experts, including former members of the Home Office Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), Professor David Nutt and Professor Alex Stevens; current and former police officers; representatives of national and international advocacy organisations; and stakeholders who have been involved with the decriminalisation of the possession of drugs in Portugal, and the provision of drug consumption rooms across Europe.
