Why Do People Make Meth? Why Do People Use Meth?
Some of the most popular stories on our radio station websites are local meth busts.
Why? Could it be the same reason I enjoy watching 'Cops' - that inner feeling that:
1. I don't have to go through what they are going through because I don't do illegal things. 2. See how stupid they look because they are doing something illegal.
Being this is a smaller community than where I came from, it could be that people are looking at the meth busts to see if they know the person(s) getting busted.
Here are my thoughts on the meth problem: If someone excelled at chemistry in school, wouldn't they be smart enough not to cook meth for a living? They might even have a good job using the training they received in school.
On the other hand, would you ingest something made from household chemicals and mixed by a person that probably didn't do that well in school? Let me say that again: WOULD YOU INGEST SOMETHING MADE FROM HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS COOKED BY A PERSON THAT CANNOT MAKE ANYTHING OUT OF THEIR LIFE EXCEPT COOKING HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS INTO AN ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE THAT COULD KILL YOU, JUST SO YOU COULD GET A CHEAP HIGH?
