Joe Ayres speaks with Alan Cassels, an internationally respected academic researcher, journalist and author, who co-authored Selling Sickness about the importance and impacts prescription drugs has on users.

“There has been a heck of a lot of information coming from the government about cannabis. If they put even a fraction of the energy and money they put into educating about cannabis, into general prescription drug use, I think that could go quite a long way,” said Cassels in the podcast.

Listen in on Cassels’s advice about how young people can prevent drug misuse.
