Entitled Who is Getting Rich from Moroccan Hash?, the project investigated «the production, consumption and trade of hash» in the Kingdom, the number one exporter of this drug in the world. The documentary revealed that farmers who grow cannabis illegally in the northern Rif region, are the weakest link in a chain that, involves international smugglers, corrupt officials and sellers in Amsterdam. Speaking to hashish growers in northern Morocco, BBC Arabic shows that authorities turn a blind eye to hashish cultivation in the Rif.
