I went to a experimental college in the late 1960’s. There were some great times and it was also awash in drugs. I just got back in touch with a friend from then.
He said, I remember you, you were the one everyone said did way too much meth. I said, But I never shot meth, I was afraid of needles. He replied, Yeah, all our friends who used needles then are dead.
Most of us from that college who survived have been in recovery programs for years. I’m fine now – and am impressed with what The Meth Project does. They use modern advertising techniques to create hard-hitting, effective ads aimed at getting kids to never take that first hit of meth. They’re doing great work, and have demonstrable results. Check them out.
