Scary, but I wonder if it's truly factual or not? 20/21 looks more like the results of fire. Granted, it could have been a fire caused while she was on meth, but not necessarily the result of meth itself.

Believe the back story was it was the result of cooking meth.

This is another example of why we should legalize marijuana. Cheap, legal MJ = these people become happy stoners instead of meth heads.

It might even make sense to legalize meth, so people can buy it safely from their mini-mart instead of cooking it themselves.

We could also use some of the tax revenue and savings on enforcement to offer subsidized drug treatment to addicts who want to stop using either one.

+1 100%. Today's meth is a direct result of it being illegal. Clandestine cooks using horrible chemicals to make a dangerous version of relatively harmless drug. Labs catching fire, and exploding, terrible cuts, dangerous, crazy people. Society really needs to lose it's hang up on people getting high on anything other than alcohol that is, and let's move forward, and help those that want to get well.

The last guy, Timothy, looks a lot like Chris Cornell, from Soundgarden/Audioslave/etc., at least in the before picture.

I highly recommend this webpage - I read most of a pretty good book on brain chemistry including dopamine called The Compass of Pleasure. This webpage induced 60+-10% of reading the book in 2+-1% of the time plus some extras.

Meth and the Brain: The Pleasure/Reward Circuit’s Role in Addiction
(Note: I removed the link because it has been replaced with a forwarding page, but there is lot of good info out there, though I haven't yet seen anything so brief and so full )

Check out the comparison of dopamine levels chart in the webpage between meth vs sex 200 vs 1250, food vs sex 150 vs 1250

By the way, from reading the above book, marijuana and mushrooms do not ramp up dopamine that much. And the book was super negative on smoking because smoking is like taking a dose of nicotine with each puff.
