TV joins the fight against Oregon meth - News
I'm all for stopping meth, especially here in Oregon where its such a big problem, but the airing of the "Crystal Darkness" video was not without some criticism. The video is heavy with meth abuse horror stories and sensationalist graphics but its quite sparse on presenting objective facts about the meth epidemic.

Nicotine is a worse drug. I think they should stop that first.
frizzle....you just don't understand. The War on Drugs is waged primarily against those destructive addictions that aren't represented by a well-heeled lobby in Washington DC.
I know, you're government is so corrupt it's untrue. Ironically we are just debating this in politics class, about pressure and interest groups. But that's another story for another time.
I really don't agree, people who are smoking know the risks and have many places to go, not to mention they in general have a much longer time before they get severe side effects.
Meth on the other hand is very addictive from the first "try" and very destructive very quickly.
There's a big difference though. Nicotine is legal.
Meth actually is not that physically addictive
however, meth is much more harmful than smoking.
I would say that energy drink abuse may be akin to meth... both increase heart rates to dangerous levels, and wreak havok on internal organs if abused over a long period of time.
Both are hell on your body, but I have never known anyone who lost EVERYTHING because of smoking tobacco... and I have known way too many who have lost everything due to methamphetamine addiction.
When I say everything, I really literally mean everything - job, business, home, friends, family, children, everything.
Meth is crazy... I've seen those face comparisons last year in class for Addictions.
I think part of the reason is because of meth's reputation, loses you respect and because it's illegal will lose you your job. Someone smoking a fag on the other hand won't lose you your career and very unlikey lose you friends or family.
