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.
