We assume intelligence and responsibility from our viewers, since all are actors in one of the biggest conflicts of our time: the international War on Drugs. This channel talks about substances as if they're a common cultural phenomenon. Because they are. Controlled Substance is hosted from the Netherlands by science journalist Tyse Roes.
