Michael Mazo's curator insight, December 15, 2014 2:54 PM

Meth has been at the top of the list for most drugs seized. This comes in part of Southeast Asia's drug industry which has affected the entire region. From opium to heroin, these drugs are highly prevalent in countries like myanmar and laos, which also have struggling economies. This illicit drug is extremely harmful yet many people are addicted and can't find the help they so direly need. Being an addict comes at the expense of your health and lack of acceptance from the local community. These figures for meth will continue to rise until the region has a crackdown on the export and production of these illegal drugs.
