Watch a Sneak Peek of Tonight’s Episode of ‘VICE’ on HBO

Our third season of VICE is currently airing Fridays on HBO, and we’ve got a sneak peek of tonight’s episode to get you excited. So far this season, we’ve investigated climate change, police militarization, and more. This week, we follow the cocaine highway from the streets of Venezuela to Caribbean drug smuggling boats to desert territories controlled by Islamic extremists until finally ending up in the noses of partiers in Europe. Then, we look at the boom in one of the world’s newest billion-dollar industries: gestational surrogacy. Check out this exclusive clip and catch the full episode tonight.

In an unprecedented case, a man in Ireland pleaded guilty to criminal charges after he posted on the woman’s Facebook account that she was a “whore” and “would take any offers.” He’d been prosecuted under the country’s Criminal Damages Act, which imposes a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and $13,600 fine. The case marked the first time someone had been held liable for damages involving a social media account.
