#SAFER Argentina (Episode one)

#SAFER ARGENTINA takes us to the land of fire in South America, where the government has banned harm reduction alternatives for people who smoke, unchaining an illicit market of products that paradoxically are safer than the combustible tobacco which is allowed to be commercialized. We explore the motives, goals, and stories of advocates Diego Verrastro, Juan Facundo Teme, and Aylen Van Isseldyk, along with people involved in selling the illegal safer alternatives. Moreover, we take a look at the correlation between a local saint named Gauchito Gil, unrecognized by the Catholic Church, and the people involved in the contraband of harm-reduction products.
