Drugs Inc explores the global powder keg.

National Geographic’s riveting show Drugs Inc. enters its second season on January 1. It’s a must-see for anyone with an interest in this vital issue. The show intimately documents various aspects of the global illegal drug trade, delving into the lives and activities of nefarious criminal figures, and the day-to-day operations of the drug business—sometimes at great peril. A clip from Episode One (below) shows an anxiety-inducing interview with a posse of heavily armed Peruvian cocaine producers, operating out of a makeshift jungle kitchen. One of the cooks, “Diego,” explains the simple procedure for creating cocaine from coco leaves and lets the crew film as he rolls up pound-sized balls of batter-like raw cocaine with his bare hands. The episode follows the coke on its journey from Peru into the US, where it ultimately ends up as crack, sold by a dealer who goes by the name of “Mista.” This season is packed with such mind-altering content, and airs Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT.
