The imagery below paints a harrowing picture of how devastating the use of various types of methamphetamine can be. Think we’re being overly dramatic? Think again. Meth has been called the world’s most dangerous drug and many U.S. cities, particularly across the Midwest, now consider it the most serious drug problem they face. In 2009, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) released findings concluding that some 1.2 million Americans over the age of twelve had abused methamphetamine in the last 12-month period. A year later, a report published by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) indicated some 13 million people were thought to have abused methamphetamine during their lives.
