Seven surprising consequences of the U.S. approach to drugs--find out the facts in This Is Your Country on Drugs.

  • Past antidrug campaigns actually encouraged drug use.
  • A few years ago, America stopped dropping acid altogether.
  • The meth epidemic peaked a long, long time ago.
  • NAFTA opened the border and created a bonanza for cocaine and meth traffickers--just as President Clinton knew it would.
  • President Reagan may have inadvertantly caused the crack epidemic.
  • Kids today are doing fewer illegal drugs than kids from any time in the recent past, and for a surprising reason.
  • The fastest-growing drug in America is a legal hallucinogen you can buy on the internet.
