This show is spot on showing drugs in people's lives in the United States. How other countries demonstrate the US as the best customer and why. Drugs rules many countries, fund many countries and facilitate disguised happiness; in the US, they just do it better. Once you cross that line no matter what the involvement is, it is tough if not impossible to cross back.
Enough of the psychology...series is well done, well edited and very complete with information on both sides.
