METH: The Oregon Front

A Special Series from OPB.

Methamphetamine first appeared in Oregon in the early ’80s. Since that time, meth has become an epidemic — ravaging Oregon and spreading rapidly across America. In 2006, OPB teamed up with FRONTLINE and The Oregonian to produce a series of TV, radio and online programs to help our community find solutions to this difficult problem.

A year later, OPB is updating its look at the meth problem in Oregon with "METH: THE OREGON FRONT 2007," a new half-hour program hosted by Colin Fogarty.
