Meth in the City
Meth has always been a largely poor, white, rural phenomenon. But new law enforcement initiatives have restricted sales of Sudafed, destroying the small labs where meth was being made and creating an opportunity for Mexican cartels, which already have distribution networks in place, to send meth into urban areas. The first city caught in Meth's grip is Atlanta, Georgia... the eastern hub of legitimate trade as well as drug traffic. This special will take a multi-faceted look at this new phenomenon--at the users; the activists who are trying to save them; the law enforcement officers on the front lines; and those working to keep the drug from spreading and taking hold of urban centers like NYC, Miami, Chicago and Philadelphia.
