but that's the point- they SHOULD be frightened. there is nothing helpful about shielding kids from the realities of something that could be offered to them in school, from their friends even, who might also tell them "its no big deal, nothing will happen to you". i would rather have a scared kid having nightmares ANY day than a kid whose brain chemistry is permanently damaged, who can never, biochemically, enjoy anything again.

anyway, who leaves the milk on the table for children to stare at?

It shows a disturbing reality on what can happen to an individual getting involved with this substance. Those people in the photos-I bet none of them planned on becoming like that trying the first few times. To another poster earlier, Yes-The chemical additives are part of it.

If you think that's scary, You should see the photos from the results of "Krokodil" in Russia. That drug caused people to decay while still living.

Truth is not always Pretty.

Well, if the user is in prison he's eating regularly and getting medical tretament, with free access to substance intervention. He or she has a much better shot at survival than on the outside.

But Tropical, Meth is banned, so it must be a problem anymore. Isn't that your logic? Maybe we can have house to house searches for meth labs. You don't care about the 2nd amendment, why not get rid of that pesky 4th amendment as well.

Back in my day when a kid wouldn't sit still, behave or pay attention they got a dose of the paddle or belt....but we can't discipline kids anymore...no wonder they grow up and kill each other...they never got to learn consequences!

Sad state of affairs. Hopefully the prisons have some sort of NA / AA type programs.
Huh. What prisons have you visited lately? MANY of them spoil the crap out of their inmates in addition to offering them tons and tons of programs. Maybe not Maricopa County but there's a lot of bleeding heart prisons out there.

None. My comment was about treatment, not the state of incarceration, and I was responding to someone who basically thought I was an idiot for wanting to keep meth illegal so that people could be rescued from it by the law. He or she asked me what made me think that incarcerating people would help. I was pointing out that the alternative was letting them die in the streets.

Maybe read the whole thread before responding?
