[edit] Information

Stacey Dooley Investigates Over the course of this hard-hitting three-part series, Stacey Dooley investigates the new frontlines of the global war on drugs, heading to remote and hostile regions to meet producers, traffickers, the authorities, law enforcement agencies, and addicts and locals caught in the crossfire

[edit] Cocaine Capital of the World

Stacey investigates why Peru has taken the title of the world's cocaine capital. Her journey starts in Lima where she meets the Brits locked up in Peru's jails for smuggling cocaine to Europe. Travelling into the countryside she then discovers how alarmingly easy it is for cocaine to be grown and produced here. Stacey joins government forces as they launch a major crackdown in an attempt to destroy this multi-million dollar industry - but will the fightback be enough? Finally she travels deep into the rainforest where farmers are growing a new super strain of coca plant. Able to grow in damp jungle conditions it threatens to open up millions of new acres to coca production and flood the world with even greater quantities of cocaine.

[edit] Thailands Drug Craze

Stacey investigates the growing drug craze sweeping through Thailand. Yaba, a dangerous mix of methamphetamine and caffeine, has gripped the nation and unleashed a wave of violence among its users. She uncovers the human cost, visiting a ward full of 'zombie' addicts, many of whom face the risk of long term psychosis, and meets users who have started taking the drug as young as 12. Stacey joins the Thai authorities as they try to fight back, joining patrols near the Burmese border and drug raids on Bangkok bars. In Bangkok she discovers that dealers are starting to target western tourists and asks if this dangerous new drug could soon claim its first victims amongst British tourists.

[edit] Europes Dirty Drugs Secret

Stacey travels to Ukraine to investigate the struggle to keep drugs out of the UK and reveals that drug cartels from South America have been using it as a transit hub to smuggle cocaine into Western Europe. In Odessa, officials show her the tricks traffickers use to hide drugs within cargoes and she learns that customs officials are notoriously open to bribes. Stacey discovers that local drug users are resorting to horrific homemade substitutes including 'crocodile', so called because it rots the flesh of users and turns it scaly. Stacey meets young addicts as they make a batch from bleach, petrol and tablets. Learning they have only months to live, Stacey is also shocked to hear that police have recently found 'crocodile' in the UK.
