'Mad on Meth', Benedict Collins' new book

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 13 November 2023

New Zealand has a meth problem.

Criminal syndicates leap at the chance to make big money cooking it, and customers are willing to commit petty and serious crimes to buy it.  

Benedict Collins is a New Zealand political reporter and has covered the P problem for years.

He says well-thought-out harm reduction plans in New Zealand have been ignored. He traces the flow of meth production from South East Asia to our shores, exposes the hidden world of white collar users here and asks, how did tough on crime become dumb on drugs, in his new book, Mad on Meth.
