The Meth EpidemicStreaming Video - 2009
In the mid-1980s, chrystal meth posed a relatively small drug problem in the U.S. Then two Mexican drug runners began smuggling ephedrine-a chemical component without which meth can't be produced-into California by the ton, and meth swept the nation. In a reporting partnership with The Oregonian, this Frontline documentary investigates America's addiction to meth and exposes the inherent conflict between the illegal drug trade and the legitimate three-billion-dollar cold remedy business that depends on ephedrine.
