What if Malaysia… Decriminalised All Drugs For Personal Use #2

What If Malaysia is an 8 episode miniseries where we explore what Malaysia could look like with certain progressive ideas, concepts and policies. In the second episode, we examine the success rate of the ‘war on drugs’ and what would happen if Malaysia decriminalised all drugs for personal use, by taking a look at what other countries have transformed once they decided to tread this so-called radical path.

Other episodes of the miniseries:
