Mariella, a drug addict. This reportage on drug abuse and related crime concentrates on three areas: Red Hook, Brooklyn, where even the ice-cream van sells drugs; East New York, Brooklyn, where about 100 murders are committed every year; and North Philadelphia, where children are pushing drugs on street corners before they even reach their teens.
