This week on VICE on HBO, we’re taking a look at cocaine in Colombia and the rise of quantum computing.

In Colombia, cultivation of coca, the main ingredient of cocaine, has nearly tripled over the past five years. As part of the 2016 peace agreement between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the country has embarked on a unique experiment to try to end coca farming and production, but freeing Colombia from its cocaine problem is proving difficult. Charlet Duboc travels to the remote towns where coca farming is a way of life to examine the struggle for a cocaine-free Colombia.

And then….

Computer giants are racing to build the first quantum computer, a device with millions of times more processing strength than all the computers currently on Earth combined. This technology will harness the unusual laws of quantum mechanics to bring unimaginable advances in fields like materials science and medicine, but could also pose the greatest threat to cybersecurity yet. Taylor Wilson meets the scientists at the cutting edge of this new age of computing.

Xeno Phon says:

If you want narco states like Columbia, AFG and Mexico to get better then remove the USA.

If Americans didnt buy the vast majority of the worlds drugs to numb their brains enough to tolerate living in a nation of terror then none of these drug lords/politicians would have any power.

Gabe Ennin says:

Wow, man VICE is killing it with all these new documentaries!

Blade Mckenzie says:

Description of the video confused me. My mind conjured up an image of drug cartels using quantum computing.

Sara Wilcker says:

There must be a reason why cocaine is used so much. I mean it must be awesome or something.
