The film takes a look at the meth epidemic raging in rural Montana communities. It's decimating the youth, the Native American population and many others. However, the Montana Meth documentary film could easily be set in rural California...and follow individuals suffering from life-crippling and life-ending meth addiction in the Central Valley, Northern Coastal regions and other rural areas.
After watching this film one hopes that people suffering from meth addiction will get treatment without having to endure the hard wake-up call of an arrest and drug crime conviction (let alone death or other devastating personal loss). But it's reassuring to note that in case of an arrest for possession of meth and other drug crimes, the California justice system often offers the chance for rehabilitation instead of incarceration.
Among such programs potentially available for those charged with nonviolent meth drug crimes are deferred entry of judgement, Proposition 36 and California drug court.
