As most Americans unfortunately know, prescription drugs are expensive and they’re not getting any cheaper. Specifically, this is nothing less than unfair for individuals who are dependent on drugs for the majority or entirety of his/her lifetime.

VICE’s Hamilton Morris explores the world of clandestine chemists, DIY bio hackers, and grey markets to see if a more democratized medicinal future is indeed possible.
