AND THE YEARS GO ON is challenging the lack of a decency in Norwegian drug politics

Oslo has for many years been regarded as the capital of drugs in Europe. The overdose statistics are rather grim, and it seems like Norwegian politicians do not have a clear policy other than "more of the same" – although it doesn't seem to do any good.

AND THE YEARS GO ON examines some of the many different Norwegian organizations that deal with addiction and drug policy. Sometimes it seems like many of these organizations are not interested in improvement for the people they are supposed to take care of.
