Meth documentary to air tonight

A 30-minute documentary, “Crystal Darkness,” will air statewide at 6:30 p.m. today.

The documentary can be seen in Portales on KOB-TV, channel 4. It features stories from New Mexico methamphetamine users and their families and is being localized in various regions.

“The Crystal Darkness” campaign began in January in Reno, Nev., by a nonprofit organization called Secret Witness which gathers anonymous crime tips and does community policing. The purpose of airing the documentary is to draw awareness to the statewide problem of methemphetamine abuse and addiction.
