Rio Grande's deserted migrant trails show evidence of new drug traffickers
The severity of the drug trafficking problem in Panama can be seen deep in its slums. Poverty and violence fill the streets putting children in the middle.
In this episode of Drug Wars, we visit El Chorillo, an area in Panama City where drug gangs use children to carry guns and even deal drugs.
Drug Wars airs Wednesdays at 9:30 P.M. EST on Fusion.
It's a war with no end in sight that generates billions in profits for those at the top. From scouring the world's oceans to trekking through dense jungles, Drug Wars is a no-holds-barred deployment into the dangerous reality of international anti-narcotics operations.
