Faces of Meth

I suppose this is a great way to use young people's concern for their appearance as a way to discourage them from drug use:

Faces of Meth

Wave your cursor over each picture and see how methamphetamine use can completely change someone's appearance for the worst--often in a very short time frame. It's truly amazing!

See also, Breaking Bad, a show about a high school chemistry teacher who decides to produce meth after receiving his terminal cancer diagnosis. It's an amazingly well done show and a look into the world of meth production and dealing.

Quote: WHAT IS THE MONTANA METH PROJECT?

The Montana Meth Project is a large-scale exercise in prevention, aimed at significantly reducing Meth use in Montana. The integrated program consists of an ongoing, research-based marketing campaign—supported by community outreach and public policy initiatives—that realistically and graphically communicate the risks of methamphetamine to the youth of Montana.

The Meth Project was conceived and founded by businessman and Montana rancher, Thomas M. Siebel. The purpose is to inform potential Meth consumers about the product attributes and actual risks associated with methamphetamine. The goal is to substantially reduce methamphetamine use.

The Montana Meth Project is a state affiliate of the national Meth Project organization.

(Siebel began this after selling his tech company by the same name for billions.)

On the news they showed some of the PSAs he's paid to produce--they're stunning. I can only imagine they'll have an impact.
