The recent news that Puerto Rico exports its drug addicts to Chicago underscored just how severe a drug epidemic the U.S. territory is currently facing. As Drug Wars discovered, the government is failing to provide treatment to drug addicts in desperate need of medical attention, which is why community volunteer groups have surfaced to take on the responsibility themselves. In this week’s episode of Drug Wars, we follow one such volunteer group through the streets of San Juan to find and help addicts fighting for their lives.
Drug Wars airs Wednesdays on Fusion @ 9:30PM ET.
