The Drug War At Home

May 16, 2011

Phoenix, AZ – Join us during Morning Edition on KUNM for a new series, The Drug War At Home from the Fronteras Changing America Desk. We'll explore how Americans' appetite for drugs and Mexico's war against drug cartels impacts our communities.

Reporters across the southwest will focus on the prevalence of stash houses, how mainstream banks launder the cartels' money, and the growing "narco" culture in the U.S.

That's The Drug War At Home series... through May 30th during Morning Edition on 89.9 KUNM.


Phoenix, AZ – The violence that's roiling Mexico can at least be partly blamed on U.S. citizens. Even top levels of the federal government now say it's Americans' demand for pot and cocaine that has sparked deadly turf battles at the border.

In the first part of a new Fronteras Changing America Series on the Drug War at Home, Peter O'Dowd reports on this country's thirst for drugs and just how much Americans love to get high.

Sun. 5/22 at 8pm: Double-amputee Aimee Mullins chronicles her adventures with prosthetic legs as an athlete, actress and artist; the mother of a bullied teen tells the story of his suicide; ex-NYC Mayor Ed Koch stands up to his anti-semitic platoon leader while in training for WWII; and three teenagers from Grace King High School in New Orleans share their stories on the theme, Prejudice and Power.

Hosted by Sarah Austin Jenness, Producing Director at The Moth.

OR...we walk down the street humming a tune and then hear it blaring from a car radio just at the point when you're in sync to sing the chorus. What do we make of these moments? Coincidence? Psychic phenomena? Nothing at all?

Kismet moments on the next Back Roads Radio show.
