Illegal magazine for drug users on sale in London

A magazine which allows drug users to make money to fund their habit has gone on sale in Hoxton, east London.

Called Illegal, it is based on a Danish publication and like the Big Issue, vendors get to keep the money they make but in this case it is made clear the money is for drugs.

Josie, a magazine vendor, explains why she likes the magazine, while Louis Jenson, founder of Illegal UK, says it provides an alternative to crime.

The Big Issue's Jim Mullen says the magazine does not provide support for users to get off drugs.
