It occured to me tonight that I have seen a profound change in life in the N.W. in the past 15 or so years due to meth. Have you folks seen the same troubles up there... perhaps Anc. being the exception? Down here all but the reputed "hippie" towns (seattle, portland, eugene, No. cal, etc.) have changed remarkably. It's indescribable, but the effect that stuff has on individual lives reaches quite a ways.

Ugh, I can't stand tweakers...they are the most shady type of people, even more so than crack addicts. And the stuff it's made from is just disgusting. I'm all for peoples freedoms but that stuff is just gross

The Mat-Su Valley has a problem with meth, as does Anchorage. No place is exempt unfortunately.

I'm not seeing it in the Sterling area. Of course I'm sure any tweakers are hiding out in their caves and don't get out much, if they are there.

Why anyone would do meth is beyond my comprehension. It permanently destroys your central nervous system and affects the brain for life. It is made of toxic chemicals that stay in the system causing damage forever. It's the nastiest drug ever introduced to human kind, as it is pure chemcal based and poison. Why young people put this crap into their body is way beyond me. Just use a gun, it is a lot faster and less painful.

Young people?

Meth is abused by all age groups.
