This episode of The Enforcers examines the story of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. From the 1800s until the present, the agency has been tasked with enforcing laws including Prohibition from 1920 to 1933 and today's gun control legislation. Included are interviews with ATF Director Bradley Buckles and agents, as well as historians who detail the agency's sometimes controversial incidents, such as Waco. Next, we look at the Drug Enforcement Agency. Although formed in 1973, a war on drugs has dated back to the 1930s when the Federal Bureau of Narcotics battled heroin smuggling. We learn how the agency fought the cocaine epidemic of the 1980s and the fight against Colombia's drug cartels.
