100 thoughts on “Zimbabwe’s Codeine Cough Syrup Epidemic

  1. I like how everyone of their excuses was that they have nothing to do, and that’s the reason they do this. That’s the worst excuse. How do they plan to get anywhere better in life high as hell all the time spending all their money on syrup. Laziness is the real issue here.

  2. Damn! Im from HOUSTON TEXAS aka city of syrup! Who knew zimbabwe was about that action. This is why i travel the world. Not for syrup lol but to open my eyes to alot of things we are blind to.

  3. Last year at college my friends and I got so bored in my dorm that we decided to drink all my NyQuil. It was a dope experience

  4. Don't be so hard on them, they don't even have enough money to build a proper economy and infrastructure and you are talking about rehab clinics, VICE? Perspective…?

  5. Am I the only one who's thinking "If I lived in Zimbabwe I'd want to be as high as possible too"? Seriously, why even make the effort to cover this story. No one in the civilized world gives a shit about a drug epidemic in some third world shit hole. Every country has their own problems to worry about. And if you say you care about a drug problem in Zimbabwe, guess what? You're full of shit.

  6. Drinking cough syrup when I’m sick is already a struggle for me, nasty af, now people are downing that shit like it’s normal.

  7. hahahaha great solutions i heard in this video.
    solve thier addiction by giving them diazepam, which in turn is…. ofcourse highly addictive and hard to kick.

  8. I know American rap music has influenced so many generations, but hearing a young talented brother from Zimbabwe calling himself the N-word in his lyrics just sickens me 🤢

  9. But why Ban the drug? Ban unemployment and out all the journalists to find why they can’t get jobs? They get off drugs they may start killing.

  10. Here in America we drop a zany in that b** and call it a day over there acting like they're a poverty place in need of something when all that s***'s going on here why don't you get back over here and fix something other than acting like something's wrong and they are to fix it just to make money to bring it back here to not even help here

  11. Unemployment shouldn't be the reason to drink this! They simply think it's cool. They mustve seen this in American Rap music!!

  12. People, Rehabilitation would never solve that issue. Rehabilitation is what you do to clean the EFFECTS and RESAULTS of your mistake! The only solution if you want to solve that issue is EDJUCATION… not REHABILITATION. Its pointless to heal 200 people while you know that after them you are going to have 400 new patients! Make sure that no more patients come next, then think about rehabilitation! What's the meaning of paying doctors and medicine if the main issue is still there; Get teachers make schools, show them how people live in the rest world and let them deside what they are going to do from now on.. People in places like this one have not even tv, no connection with the world! I find it normal to try kill your self if your life is full of depression and troubles! A fake world in the youngs minds seems better than the world goverments builded up for them. They are trying to forget the fact Goverment and people ignores them .

  13. It’s a shame the documentary never mentioned the influence of American rap contributing to this epidemic. It seems pretty blatant to me.

  14. "former dictator robert mugabe ran the country into the ground"…. Vice, tell the truth. The People of zimbabwe elected Mugabe because they wanted to oust Ian Smith, steal white farms and give them to uneducated farmers, and turn over manufacturing to the impoverished. Since 1986 (the end of Ian Smith's government) food had to be imported (where i was exported), and manufacturing stopped. Mugabe was part of the problem, but the people of zimbabwe chose mugabe over smith.


  16. What!!!people are talking about Zimbabwe but have you seen sunnyside ,South Africa.pharmavalue is making money off still paine

  17. Somehow i believe they would have better off as the colony they were before. Well, just like almost every african country. As soon as they are allowed to govern themselves it turns to shit.
