Rainbow Vice depicts the fast growing drug culture of South Africa, tightly linked to the world of commercial sex and in conflict with a profoundly Christian population. Through research based on several hundred interviews, the author show how multifarious the drug scene is across different ethnic groups.

He pays special attention to South Africa's very own indigenous dagga (cannabis), and the much newer Mandrax (or 'buttons'). He explains precisely what is known of the drugs and examines the South African government's inherited policy of blanket prohibition of all vice.
