About This Section

The use of crystal methamphetamine is a medical, legal and social crisis that has now entered its third generation in Hawai‘i. A dozen years ago, Congress held hearings on the topic, calling them “The Poisoning of Paradise.”

But despite a dip in publicity, meth hasn’t left the islands—and is still breaking families and lives. 

We talk with those who deal with the drug everyday about what can be done to address this crisis. This podcast is produced by Hawai‘i Public Radio with help from Honolulu Civil Beat.
