Episode 4

This episode explores the rising use of cannabis, which is now increasingly being smoked openly on Wiltshire's streets as people's attitudes to the class B drug change fast. 999 call handler Holly Goodall explains 'there is a split between society seeing cannabis as being a good thing and cannabis as being a really bad thing'. This shifting attitude is especially evident among the young. When the police catch a group of teenagers smoking joints outside, one unfazed teenage girl responds: 'I know you think it's like illegal' - and when officers tell her that really it's actually still illegal-illegal, she offers in mitigation to 'next time smoke it indoors'.and I think it's messing with people's brains.'.
