Why I love METH (cartoon)

Pat Macpherson, CC Liu, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly; Seth Macfarlane, "Family Guy"

Crystal meth (methamphetamine, "speed") is a synthetic chemical developed by Nazi scientists (as Pervitin) to get soldiers to kill more. There is perhaps no faster way to contact and be overtaken by inner demons than meth, exceeding even the speed of rum consumption. It might not be so bad if it were sustainable. But most of the obviously bad effects of meth stem not from the stimulation and exhaustion of one's life force reservoir so much as the toxic excipients (extra ingredients). One may as well swim in a large corporation's sludge pond. Dioxin, petroleum byproducts, Drano, match heads... Is it any wonder teeth fall out, pock marks form on the skin, insane itching begins as the skin -- the body's largest organ of elimination -- tries to detoxify?

Actual toxic waste goes into meth!
Warning: Do not swim in sludge ponds!
The Nazis were onto something. Imagine a cheap pharmaceutical that could take the place of cocaine. It is rumored that Adolf Hitler was an addict. To be sure other inner party Nazis were. Why would the CIA continue to promote expensive and risky crack addiction in American ghettos when methamphetamines are so much easier to produce without the trouble of cross-border transporting?

Yum, it's sugarcoated "Toxic Waste" candy
And why leave the middle class out of the fun? Now meth is available in a variety of dance-quality colors, flavors, and grades, not the least of which is old MDMA sold as the "new and improved" Molly. Those who would never dream of drinking Drano things in dad's garage would, somehow, consider taking hits of Ecstasy. Even America's own father, scoot over Homer Simpson, is not immune to the lure of toxic sludge. Of course, he's only joking.

Meth first, then prostitution?
Cartoons make it cute, but addiction of any kind is ugly ugly ugly
