Behind Malaysia’s Drug Laws: A Family’s Ordeal

Like most Southeast Asian countries, Malaysia has extremely strict anti-drug laws that are often punishable by death. Filmmakers Loh Jo Yee and Hidayah Hisham delve into Malaysia’s criminal justice system with their upcoming documentary, Ayahku, Dr G (My Father, Dr G) which follows Siti and her 60-year-old father, who faces the death penalty for using medical cannabis to treat his chronic illnesses.

This episode does not advocate for or against the use of medical marijuana. We strongly advise listeners to adhere to laws in their country and to defer to a medical professional’s opinion when it comes to treatment.

You can visit Ayahku, Dr G’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for more information about the film.
