6. A Deadly High

Throughout the U.S., emergency rooms have seen a spike in drug overdoses involving extreme paranoia, psychosis, and some fatalities. The culprit? A new generation of synthetic drugs with benign-sounding names like Bath Salts, Vanilla Sky, and Cloud 9. Sold at head shops, gas stations, and online for as little at $20, the substances mimic marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy, and other illicit drugs. And just like these hardcore drugs, their side effects can be dangerous and even deadly at times. Synthetic drugs are designed by drug "chemists" who tweak the substances' formulas to try and keep the drugs legal, often relying on trial-anderror. In some cases, synthetic drugs are too new to be regulated - though law enforcement is catching up, outlawing the drugs soon after they hit the streets. They're relatively cheap and easy to get over the internet. And they're making lots of money for the producers and sellers. Rick Broider, president of the North American Herbal Incense Trade Association located in New Hampshire, produces a variety of synthetic substances including synthetic marijuana. His organization claims that their products churn out big-time profits: $5.4 billion. Broider disputes that synthetic drugs have harmed anyone. "Would we be a $5 billion dollar industry if people were truly dying?" he says. Federal law enforcement agencies, including the DEA, as well as several local agencies, such as the Tammany Parish (Louisiana) Sheriff's Office, which covers an area hard-hit by synthetic drugs, have agreed to give us access to undercover operations and raids of businesses selling synthetic drugs illegally. We could also revisit methamphetamine - one of the original synthetic drugs - more than a decade after the scourge first hit. As discussed, Carl Quintanilla produced a story on meth in New Jersey. Carl can do a ten-year retrospective on meth.

8. The War on Counterfeit Goods

The UN calls art crime a global industry and the FBI estimates losses running as high as $6 billion annually - and this surveyed number is probably low because it only includes a third of the 192 member countries of the United Nations. Art and antiquities theft ranks fourth in transnational crime after drugs, money laundering, and illegal arms shipments. But in the US art theft didn't even become a federal crime until 1995. Art crimes run the gamut from fraud to theft to looting and trafficking. Today, according to the Justice Department, the annual value of illegally trafficked art and cultural objects is surpassed only by the illegal trades in drug and gun smuggling. For savvy thieves, art has become a form of currency. It's easy to move across borders and few in law enforcement are trained to flag suspicious items. In fact, everything fueling the legitimate global economic revolution - the Internet, efficient shipping, mobile phones, and customs reforms (particularly in the EU) makes it easier for thieves to smuggle stolen art. And pulling off a successful crime relies on close ties between the illegitimate and legitimate art world. The art world. Mysterious and seductive. It's commerce based less on facts and figures than intangibles like reputation and intuition. And it's ripe for exploitation.

9. Secrets for Sale

You may think of corporate espionage as one company spying on a competitor to see what's in their pipeline. But more often, corporate espionage is an "inside job," involving an employee leaving with trade secrets. Whatever its form, corporate espionage is a huge business. In 2008, the director of U.S. National Intelligence told Congress that intellectual property and data theft costs businesses $1 trillion every year, posing an enormous threat to America's economic power and competitiveness. Companies can no longer afford to look the other way as foreign spies, former employees and corporate rivals continue to attack some of America's most competitive industries by stealing secret information.
