Stacey Dooley: New Drugs Frontiers w/t (3 x 60′) – Across the world there’s a cat and mouse battle being fought between drug traffickers and law enforcement, and in this brand-new series, Stacey Dooley goes to the heart of this ongoing war.
Despite global efforts to crack down on the drugs trade, new and more powerful drugs are constantly being created. New countries are being dragged into the battle, which is presenting major challenges to the authorities trying to combat them and posing new threats to local populations and the people who take the drugs.
In this series, Stacey travels to Mexico to investigate the meth trade, the drug cartels and how they’re destroying whole swathes of the country. In South Africa she’s on the trail of the latest and most potent strains of skunk, and in India she reveals the truth behind the latest wave of designer drugs hitting Britain’s streets. In all three countries, she joins the authorities on the front line, tracks down participants and victims, and witnesses the chaos and destruction these dangerous substances leave in their wake.
