Around 500,000 people in California are addicted to methamphetamine. This is one out of every 200 person in California. This goes far beyond the US. Methamphetamine is also rampant in South-East Asia, Mexico, and the Philippines.
Methamphetamine is one of the most stigmatized and misunderstood illegal drugs. We will be separating fact and fiction about crystal meth, and how the War on Drugs created a fast-paced world.
The War on Drugs examines the social consequences of global prohibition. Every attempt to stop the drug trade, such as heroin, cocaine or ketamine, invariably leads to a chain reaction that only makes matters worse. This can lead to a trail of crime, death, violence, poverty, addiction and inequality around the world.
Everyone loses, except for the drug addicts.
