Begins an unprecedented investigation into the nation’s ongoing war with cocaine. Through first-person accounts, the program chronicles the struggles of people who have used, sold, and given their lives away to the drug. Law enforcement agencies in Texas and Florida attempt to stop cocaine's flow into the U.S., but powerful drug cartels in Mexico and Colombia will stop at nothing to keep cocaine on the streets and the money in their pockets. Special sections on cocaine and crack's effects on the human body reveal the drug's intensely addictive nature and why users face a tough road to recovery. NOTE: This program contains depictions of drug use. Please preview before showing it to students.
