Last month, investigators in Atlanta recovered about 500 pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside Disney figurines. That's worth about $2 million. Drug Enforcement Administration officials not only say that Atlanta is a hub for crystal meth distribution; according to the DEA, meth also the "No. 1 threat" in the metro area.


Georgia Bureau of Investigation director Vernon Keenan says his organization has seen a "marked increase" in meth seizure since 2002. Keenan and Georgia Prevention Project executive director Jim Langford joined us in studio to discuss their efforts to curb drug abuse and fight drug trafficking.
