Reno leaders try to tackle meth problem with TV documentary

When it comes to methamphetamine use, Nevada holds a dubious distinction.

The state leads the nation in the number of people who have used meth in their lifetime as well as in the past year and last 30 days, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Now, community leaders are trying to fight back with the help of a 30-minute documentary, "Crystal Darkness: Meth's Deadly Assault on Nevada's Youth," to be shown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on nearly every Reno television station.

The Las Vegas Sun reports.
