Our weekly documentary film, curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE. 

This film offers one particular inside look into what could be described as ‘Syria’s War Drug’. Undercover reporters offer a look inside production of the amphetamine-based street narcotic, Captagon, the powerful amphetamine being used by soldiers in Syria. Aside from the black market financial side, this underworld industry might explain one of the factors driving young Al Nusra and ISIS fighters in Syria.
