This is by far, the most dangerous drug on planet Earth. In a very short time, it is capable of devastating anyone's life who is foolish enough to start using it. What starts out as a "love at first sight, dream come true " soon becomes a "nightmare from Hell" experience.
I watched a show on TV recently about meth. The experts said that meth actually changes the chemistry in the brain. Now that's very scary.
A drug crafted from fertilizer, battery acid and cold medicine is not something I want to ingest.
I know this family personally. The mom can take credit for being the reason her sons turned to drugs. When you are raised in drugs and alcohol it turns into a viscious cycle. She forgot to include her other son. He is currently serving five years for possession of meth because the judge was tired of seeing him in court. Three out of four sons involved in meth is not good. These boys was never held accountable for there actions at home. Its a shame that it took incarceration for all three to straighten up. They all had family begging them and willing to help them get out of the drug scene. They were also warned to quit hanging around "friends & family" that were doing drugs. Sometimes I guess you have to learn the hard way. I just pray that the new generation of children breaks the cycle. It might help if they all moved out of East Griffin.
Trust me, East Griffin is not the only Ice Alley around here. It is everywhere. Even in the neighborhoods over off East College Street. No matter how hard we try to get rid of this drug, it just keeps coming back. Someone gets introduced to this drug every second of everyday and us against them is going to get bad before it gets any better.
I still don't get it, I have done a lot of drugs in my life. I also have a very nice job and house I'm glad I did them and I'm glad I stopped doing them. However meth was one that I could never do. I did it one time only it didn't make me feel good or get high it just made me stay awake. That sucks why would anyone just want to stay up all night and day.
