  • Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway-John Wayne

Posted 03 January 2013 - 01:09 AM

Before you decide to try meth, or have done it for the first time and plan on doing it again, I suggest you take a look at these pictures.  You wouldn't believe how old it makes you look even after only a couple of years, not to mention what its doing to the inside of your body or brain.

These pictures might help you recognize someone on meth and know to avoid them.  They can't be trusted.

Didn't know him personally just knew of all the crap he did but a guy that grew up a couple of miles from me got on the stuff.  Put a gun to his own dads head, continually vandalizing property, shot his girlfriend in the leg then killed himself while driving down the highway.

Couldn't get past the first pic. Sad.

What a death grip it has on an individual that they truly become someone else, psychologically and physically.

I've heard meth is very highly addictive and that it doesn't take but a couple of times to become addicted.  I really feel sorry for people on this.  I've heard not too many people ever get off of it and stay off of it.  Really sad.

Drugs can only make you worse, they're not the solution for anyone's problems... It's very sad :(

Meth labs were such a big problem in the state we used to live in. The police were always busting them and they seemed to be young people with little ones about. That’s what scares me too. The labs are so dangerous for a number of reasons and then to have toddlers in the mess. We even rented an old (cleaned up and certified safe) meth house because it was the only place that would allow us 4 pets. I used to worry about getting a knock on the door at night, someone looking for no good.

It hurts to look at them.  The before pictures show such common, everyday people.  Most of the after pictures, you can hardly recognize them.

Wow!  Notice that most of them have sores all over their faces?  Also notice that one of the girls was obviously the victim of a meth lab gone bad.  Sad indeed.

I wonder if its safe to live in a house that was used for cooking meth.  Wouldn't there be fumes or something to collect on the walls?

I believe it's very hazardous because the chemicals used to cook meth are highly toxic. I watched one report recently where a family who bought a house that wasn't disclosed as a former meth lab got very very sick with in a few weeks of moving into it.

Each year I hear of more and more meth labs being discovered by police or exploding. Plus in Australia our borders and customs are so strict that a lot of these dealers make more money manufacturing meth here. Instead of trying to import other drugs that have a high risk of being caught and more hassle.

Meth is the drug of choice nowadays, because meth is more available to manufacture out of anything containing meth-based chemical compounds. Rural areas are hotbeds of meth manufacturing while the meth pandemic wrecked some small towns. The California desert is literally home to thousands of meth labs, those places are run-down and covered in trash or weeds, and criminal activity is assocaited with what looks like abandoned houses or homesteads. Meth ruins people and communities, this stuff is dangerous and messes with peoples' lives. I saw pictures on the internet of arrested meth addicts with torn up faces, some are malnourished from lack of food when their bodies are under meth addiction...and telltale signs of poverty when not able to work, their money is given to their drug dealers and blown on other drug use some meth addicts are also hooked on.

Just want to add that articles/pictures like that are intended to shock and awe. We should ban SSRI's onto the dangerous drugs list as well. Ive got before and after pics of the bad effects of that class of drugs as well.

My next question was going to be does other countries have a problem with this drug like the US does?  I guess its everywhere.

Thanks for answering that question.  If it will make someone very sick just being where it was made think about how sick it will make you cooking it.
