Stanford Health Policy Forum focuses on America's methamphetamine epidemic

Methamphetamine, a central nervous system stimulant drug, allows users to work harder, for longer periods of time, and with greater concentration. For this reason it's often described as the "most American drug."

In this Stanford Health Policy Forum video, Stanford addiction expert Keith Humphreys, PhD, and journalist and best-selling author Nick Reding, discuss the resurgence of methamphetamine production in the U.S., why the drug is so devastating to communities and how policymakers should respond to the epidemic.

A 1:2:1 podcast with an edited audio-only version of the conversation is also available here.
