Methamphetamine Use Trouble Spots (satire)
Depicted above are cities where methamphetamine has been reported as a problem.
If you live in these cities, then you might have met or seen a lot of people high on meth. YMMV
If you don't then that does not mean your country does not have a meth problem.
Currently the trouble spots nationally are the Philippines and Canada (see graphic below).
The above information merely charts mention of meth busts in cities and regions globally.
It is likely that if you are not a recreational drug user then you will not experience a problem with meth users or even meet a tweaker looking for meth crystals on the sidewalk while doing the "meth dance."
Here is the first of a series of three videos of Shane Nasty, the meth dancing bum:
On this youtube page to the right are other examples of meth addicts to peruse.
My conclusion on the matter of recreational meth use is that with the addictive personality, crystal meth is worse than crack cocaine or heroin. YMMV
However, psychiatrists routine prescribe methamphetamine or amphetamine for children with ADHD who rarely become drug addicts because they treat their medication responsibly. Though, people with undiagnosed ADHD have a high risk to self-medicate with alcohol and other substances of abuse. often, their self-medication may lead to drug abuse and a high risk of homelessness and poverty.
Thus methamphetamine is the post-modern day equivalent of chronic alcoholism, crack addiction, and heroin abuse.
My final word on the matter of meth abuse is, "Mmmm drugs (like alcohol, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine) are bad."
SMART PEOPLE DON'T DO DRUGS, BUT SOMETIMES SUPPOSEDLY SMART PEOPLE STUPIDLY MAKE BAD CHOICES LIKE DRUG ABUSE.
