Pilot Footage for “The World on Drugs” Was Captured In Mexico

Pilot footage for the “The World on Drugs” was captured in Mexico where the Microdose team met with notable thought leaders, clinicians and psychedelic medicine providers. Footage from this included compelling stories from ibogaine providers, UN drug policy experts, holistic doctors providing robust plant based addiction treatment and much more. While Mexico has been one of the hardest hit countries by the War on Drugs, it is also rapidly becoming a hub for many to deeply heal from addiction, depression and other challenging conditions. The Microdose team was fortunate enough to capture powerfully personal stories of transformation, expert commentary on drug policy and cathartic moments that illustrate the human element to our current mental health crisis.
