Abstract:

Many experts consider methamphetamine, also called crank or crystal meth, a greater drug problem than cocaine and heroin combined. Meth leaves tragedy after tragedy in its wake-addiction, crime, burn victims, neglected children, and toxic materials. This program measures meth's shocking impact on one Tennessee town. It examines the phenomenon of ever-widening abuse of the drug, the legislation aimed at controlling the sale of meth-precursor cold medicines, and the hard lessons many families learn about addiction.
