LOUIS THEROUX: THE CITY AD­DICTED TO CRYS­TAL METH

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - FRONT PAGE -

ABC2, 8.30pm Louis Theroux ( pic­tured) vis­its Cen­tral Val­ley in Cal­i­for­nia, and show­cases a pop­u­la­tion with lit­tle hope of get­ting out of its dark and des­o­late life­style in the grip of a ter­ri­ble ad­dic­tion. Ev­ery­one knows some­one who is ad­dicted to crys­tal meth. Theroux meets a woman who has four chil­dren in care, an­other woman with a drug ad­dict part­ner, and a cou­ple who have lost five kids to em­brace a meth ad­dic­tion for 25 years. It’s a sear­ingly hon­est por­trayal of how drugs are more in­sid­i­ous in a community than ram­pant dis­ease.
