This episode of the news program Frontline offers viewers an in-depth history of the modern war on drugs. This first episode begins with a discussion of the Nixon Administration's take on the rising problem of drug abuse in the United States. The government at this point took the lead in treatment programs, offering methadone for Vietnam veterans addicted to heroin. From that point, the video traces the rise of recreational drugs in America and the Central American figures who made cocaine and marijuana popular in this country. Included are several interviews with key members of the Lehder cartel. Also interviewed are players in the Medellin family who describe the tactics used to flood America with cheap cocaine.
