    I attended a presentation by a State Trooper several years ago featuring slides of before/after shots of multiple meth users. The shocking physical deterioration takes place in a matter of a few months --- if the methhead lives that long.

    Some of the before pics of the women are reasonable attractive.

    After the meth... not so much, to say the least.

    I've seen people on the street that look similar to the after pic in the OP. I always have my hand on CCW. just sayin'.:shocked:

    Yet there are people who use it recreationally and even medically and never become freakish like that. Puzzling.

    Down where I work there's all walks of life running around. I've seen a few meth heads recently, I know there meth heads because they look just like the pic of the guy above. Real life looking zombies!!!
     
  9. it would surprise me, if anyone were to be surprised by those photos.

    smoking or snorting something that is 100% synthetic...what do you expect?

    Although, I don't agree with making it illegal. Grown ups can make their own informed decisions as to what they will or will not put into their bodies.
     
  10. Welcome to my world - I'm an addictions therapist. I have seen guys use Rx speed look pretty rugged in a few weeks. Your body doesn't know if its from a pharmaceutical factory or a clandestine lab. Of course the meth from labs has a lot of residual crap in it and varying one of the 40 some recipes/processes by a different brand of raw material, a few degrees of heat or the time creates new weirdo chems. A lot of the physical damage is from the weirdo chemicals used to make meth clandestinely. This time of year its easy to spot a tweaker. They're outside in the cold with flip flops, shorts, and tank tops because they are overheated from the meth. Their hallucinations and delusions can be a hoot. My favorite to date was a guy who said with all sincerity, "I am Adoph Hitler's daughter." Industry loves the stuff though - productivity is up in the factories. If you've never seen someone on meth visit a supermarket that's open all night about 2 am and check out the guys restocking the shelves....they're very fast for a reason...

  11. Yep, most substance users never become addicts, but don't let logic get in the way of a good TMZ thread.

  13. You may be right. Over 20 years of addictions counseling and I've never had a "casual" meth user beg for help cleaning up...that stuff hooks folks fast. Its thought of as a biker's drug because they use to make and sell it - but these days its primarily a woman's drug for weight loss and to be able to keep a job or two while dealing with the kids and shopping and cleaning house and all the other stuff she has on her plate...until they crash. There were days when insurance companies paid us to detox meth users. All they did was crash and sleep. Insurance companies finally figured out the tweakers could crash at home and then ask for help...IF they wanted it.

    Had a date or two with crystal myself, and even went into work on it. It's seriously horrifying to feel the effects of it on your body when you're coming down if you're not a regular user. I don't regret experiencing it, but I'm grateful to God that it was just a one time binge and I didn't go back to it. Meth really is a hell of a drug.

    I've seen these threads before but I forgot, why should we legalize this stuff, and therefore make it cheaper and easier to get?
     
  17. Because as an adult, you own the rights to your body. Therefore, you may CHOOSE what or what not to put into it.

    Quit babysitting grown adults...thats not the governments job, nor is it anyone elses.

    I recently attended a presentation by a regional DEA agent. He told us that invariably we all had been shopping at WalMart at one time or another while a someone was in the parking lot cooking meth with ingredients that had just been purchased inside the store. He also told us that regardless of where you live, there is probably a meth lab within a 3 mile radius.
