"CRACK" - National Geographic Channel's "Drugs, Inc." series.

Fueling crime and violence like no other drug on the planet, crack cocaine is deadly, and so addictive that users will do anything to get their hands on it. Desperate for a high, addicts Jeff and Alexis turn to burglary, drug dealing and even prostitution. In Peru, 14-year-old Gian Carlos is addicted to paco - a highly toxic cocaine by-product sweeping the slums - and harvester "Diego" operates a clandestine cocaine kitchen where he produces high-grade cocaine for trafficking.

"ECSTASY" - National Geographic Channel's "Drugs, Inc." series.

 

Christmas morning in a pill. Penicillin for the soul. Known by users as the ultimate "love drug," ecstasy's euphoric high comes with major lows: Ravers have died from it and organized crime gangs will kill for it. In California, students "dial-a-deal" - ordering the drug over the phone and having it delivered directly to their door. A simple transaction like this turned deadly for a 23-year-old dealer who delivered a deadly dose and now faces 20 years in prison.

 

Greg co-produced the Oakland and San Francisco segments.
