The Lebanese Drug Lord

Lebanon is known around the world for its hashish. In the Beqaa Valley farmers grow it with impunity, making millions of dollars a year. Backed by armed militiamen, the country's drug lords have became untouchable. Benjamin Zand visits one of the biggest drug lords, and finds out how the civil war in neighboring Syria means the farms have been able to flourish. BBC Pop Up is the BBC's mobile bureau.
