The NZ Drug Foundation tweeted a link to the latest episode of “Hindsight” which screened in NZ earlier this week. It looks at drugs in New Zealand through an historical lens. It contains great archival footage from the 60s and 70s.
You can watch it by following this link. If you are watching from outside NZ don’t be out off by the messages that appear between segments advising that the documentary cannot be viewed out side N; it can, it just takes a few moments for the image to appear.
For those of you with an historical bent you might also like to read “From Mr Sin to Mr Big” by Desmond Manderson ISBN 0 19 553531 6. First published in 1993 the book is quite old but the information about the history of Australian drug laws up until that point in time is timeless.
