Exclusive: We talk to a female drug mule carrying out a 13-year sentence

As researchers in London argue that nearly a quarter of new cases of psychosis are linked to high potency 'skunk-like' cannabis - at a time when many are calling for the legalisation of the drug - here in London there have been nearly 50,000 seizures of various drugs including cannabis. That amounts to 28 per cent of all the drugs seized across the UK - big business for those making money from the trade.

Increasingly, it's women who are being targeted to get the drugs to market. According to the Prison Reform Trust, 15 per cent of women in jail are there for drug-related offences.

We spoke to one woman serving a 13-year sentence for drugs charges, who says she was set up by men who used her to unwittingly import Class As. We've obscured her voice and face to protect her identity.
