Inside baseball's drug problem

The suspension that could sideline Alex Rodriguez through the 2014 season is just the latest performance enhancing drug scandal scandal for Major League Baseball.  The league has fought hard to keep banned substances out of the game.  Anderson spoke with Kirk Radomski about why it is so difficult to do.  Radomski started as a bat boy for the New York Mets.  By the time the feds busted him in 2005, he estimates he was supplying 300 ballplayers with performance enhancing drugs.

Tonight on AC360: U.S. teens recruited by Mexican drug cartels

We have been coming to Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico for several years covering the Zeta cartel and the incredible influence it has on both sides of the border.
Several years ago, Ed Lavandera learned of American teenagers that were hired by the cartel to kill on both sides of the border.  We patched together their story from police interviews and interrogation tapes and the photos of the horrendous crime scenes they left behind.
Now, we interviewed two of these men who say they started killing for the cartel when they were young teenagers.   They tell of a violent world where they say it was kill or be killed. They were showered with money, cars and houses while killing dozens of wanted men inside this dark world.
