Meth in the City
(Manufactured on Demand)
Methamphetamine has always been a largely poor white rural phenomenon. But new law enforcement initiatives have restricted sales of Sudafed destroying the small labs where methamphetamine was being made and creating an opportunity for Mexican cartels which already have distribution networks in place to send methamphetamine 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.
