Colombia: Video interview of 12 year old drug dealer

Giovanni Lopera interviews Jorman, a 12 year old in a Colombian working class neighborhood who tells how he deals drugs to help at home with money, giving half his earnings (6 USD for 6 hours) to his mother. He was kicked out of school when they discovered his illicit activities and he is planning to enroll in night-school to finish his studies, although he would have to quit his work.
