An episode from the first series of Drugs, Inc, exploring the world of crystal meth. The cameras follow the authorities as they raid a suspected American meth lab, and undertake surveillance on a pharmacy where addicts buy pills in bulk for conversion into meth in smokable form.
Crystal meth is a highly addictive stimulant which can keep users awake for days, and due to the ease at which it can be produced domestically by amateur using ingredients which can be purchased over the counter at pharmacies and other shops it has reached epidemic status across the USA and beyond.
