A Scourge on Modern Man;
Methamphetamine could be straight out of the Devils own Handbook. The destructor, the accusor, waster of lives and livelihoods, is not a respector of persons, places, or things, either. What a perfect tool in the hands of a most lethal adversary, feed your enemy to themself. What else could blind a parent to a dependant childs most basic needs. Or baffle its imbiber into psychotic rampages and delusional suicides? The way the addicts waste away and do not appear to care or reverse course is an amazing phenomena all by itself. Throw it all together and the absolute evil manifestation cannot be denied. Somehow we must give this drug a seperate consideration and stamp it out with the punitive power reserved for crack cocaine, heroin, and steroids. I would even go a step further and give life in prison or death penalty for those cooking or dealing quantities of this poison. Face it, that is exactly what this drug is, like Rat Poison.
Yesterday a good man was run down by a man who was best described as drug addicted and really someone who has destroyed his own life and now taken another. Scott Russell was a CHP frontline warrior protecting us from people like the maniac who murdered him. It is a shame and a tragedy that this should ever happen, but actually it happens all too often. I have personally witnessed the destruction meth will cause- guaranteed, if it is used and abused, and cannot believe there is nothing we the people can do to protect ourselves from those among us who succomb to this demon. A stigma must be attached to meth that is as legendary as that of heroin ,opium or LSD. We can maybe save a generation somewhere down the road. It is a prayer worth saying.
