Exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to a US Customs investigation highlights this look at the latest "in" drug.
The latest ''in'' drug isn't really that new--it's been around since the `80s. But ecstasy started really attracting attention in the late `90s when it became the drug of choice at the all-night dance parties known as raves. It wasn't long before it broke out of the club scene.
THE AGONY OF ECSTACY ventures from clandestine manufacturing labs in the Netherlands to the pulsating floors of New York City's hottest clubs, meeting with users, law enforcement professionals and doctors to explore every aspect of the drug. Find out why the international distribution of ecstasy is dominated by Israeli organized crime, and hear from users why they are drawn to the drug. Exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage from a U.S. Customs investigation highlights the efforts to halt its spread, while medical experts detail the long-term risks for users.
