While much of the country is focused on the opioid epidemic, San Diego County is dealing with an old, but familiar problem: methamphetamine abuse. In the fourth installment of INSIGHT, NBC 7's Tom Jones and Mari Payton discuss the increase in meth-related arrests and deaths in San Diego County, resulting in law enforcement calling the region “ground zero” for the country’s meth problem. With the help of three other NBC 7 reporters, the team looks at the crisis from all angles, including support services for addicts and what border agents are doing to try to stop the drug from entering the country.
