Some of these nasty habit makers include Cocaine, Opioids, Meth, and Heroin, among others, and each one has an intriguing story to tell about how those at the top of that that industry get incredibly rich. The Business of Drugs is a rugged and chillingly effective look at supply and demand that has a must-see mini-series written all over it.
