Meth - Why?
I've tried marijuana. I get it. I haven't tried acid or mushrooms, but I get it. Meth? I got no f'n clue.
I don't support drug use of any kind, so let's get that out of the way. I just fail to understand that if someone wants to get high, why is meth their drug of choice? Forget for a minute that it can bring prison time, because that should be enough of a reason not to do it. No, let's look at what it does to your body.
This drug of choice removes your teeth, reduces you to a skeleton, and makes you walk around mumbling like an idiot and scratching yourself. I may have been known to do the latter, but that's an enterily different story.
I've seen people change from this drug. It's hideous. Beautiful people turned ugly in a matter of months. Smart people reduced to babbling spazoids. I've seen people lose their children because of their addiction. Bright futures sentenced to 15 or more years in prison. I'm sorry, but there is no high worth any of this to me.
Remember, before it is an addiction, it is a choice. Why anyone chooses to do this for the first time is insane. Those billboards where they showed people on meth need to come back. Maybe people looking in the mirror don't realize how awful they look, but when they are riding (hopefully not driving) down the highway and see those pictures they may just say "I'm not going to let that happen to me." Too many have thought "Meth won't do that to me."
Edit: Now that I think about it, this could be the beginning of the zombie apocalypse.
