METH STORM: Arkansas USA

Mar 11, 2017

8:30pm – 10:06pm CT

With unparalleled access on both sides of the law, "METH STORM: Arkansas USA" is a thrilling non-fiction cops and robbers drama told from inside the war on drugs. Gone are the days of the homegrown American Meth lab, now 90% of the drug comes over the border cheaper, from Mexico. "METH STORM" tells the story of drug enforcement agents struggling to stop Cartels from flooding the US with a super potent form of meth called ICE; and the poor, rural users and dealers caught in between them. In an ironic twist on the relationship between two countries, an agent trying to turn a drug dealer pleads, "you are living in slop, the Mexicans are making so much money, they are living like kings."
