Cannabis is the most widely used illicit substance on Earth. For years, supply has been controlled by ruthless criminals but now there is a quasi legal industry worth billions and business is booming.
Welcome to the $300 billion industry of Drugs, Inc., where traffickers pocket huge profits, addicts become chained in a vicious cycle and law enforces wage war across diverse battlefields - farmers' fields, shady labs, urban street corners and suburban schools. How does this business work? Can it be stopped or should it be regulated? What impact does it have on those it touches? National Geographic Channel presents a hard-hitting new series, Drugs, Inc., which provides a 360º view of frequently abused drugs: cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana. Each episode mixes broad context and first-person perspectives from traffickers, dealers, users, law enforcement and medical professionals who take viewers to the core of this lucrative business. The series follows each drug's production cycle, its supply line into our communities and its effects on the human body.
