The Cocaine Explosion
There's a world glut of the drug cocaine, and much of it is aimed at Britain. With demand in the USA virtually saturated, the coke barons are opening up fresh markets in Europe. They have a powerful new asset in 'crack' - a refined form of cocaine that is instantly addictive.
Across the Atlantic there's an alarming 'crack' epidemic.
'Freebase cocaine - crack - is the most dangerous form of drug addiction known to mankind. It is rapid in onslaught, and takes its toll of physical and mental health more quickly than any other substance.
It's not another country's problem - the Bahamas, the United States, Bolivia - it's a world problem.'
DR BRIAN HUMBLESTON , Chief Psychiatrist,
John Penycate reports on the cocaine barons and their corrupting business, from the places where 'crack' has taken hold, and asks: must it come here?
