Eight years ago, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office launched a campaign called "the Faces of Meth" to address Oregon's methamphetamine problem. The images showed the jarring effects of meth on addicts' faces through before-and-after pictures from their arrest records. Rehabs.com recently followed suit with this infographic. Warning: these images are disturbing
Face of a Meth User - 10 Years. I knew telling my kids about being illegal, and bad for your health, and the natural negative consequences (like, uh, STDs and getting your teeth knocked out, and unplanned pregnancies... that stuff) of drugs and irresponsible (including underage) drinking would only go so far... So I always REALLY emphasize how it makes them look; I appealed to the kids' very natural sense if vanity. (Faces of Meth) Meth has been glamorized by Breaking Bad... Show your kids!
