METH: THE WORLDS MOST DANGEROUS DRUG PART 2 OF 3
Methamphetamine–-“meth”–-is considered to be one of the hardest drugs to quit. This dangerous drug is ravaging rural communities and spreading its poison to major metropolitan areas and across international borders at an alarming rate. What makes this drug so powerful, addictive, and destructive?
National Geographic Channel correspondent Lisa Ling tracks the grimy world of meth from the US to Thailand. Riding with specialised law enforcement agents, Ling exposes the gritty lives of traffickers and addicts. See the faces of real meth users, where before-and-after pictures alone tell a stunning story of the drug's punishing physical effects. But behind the face, the drug has an even more destructive impact on the brain - both physiologically and psychologically.
