The dark side

It’s impossible, these days, to not think about drugs and their corrosive influence on society. Or more generally about addiction and the human tendency to fall into it. If it’s not one crippling dependency, it’s another. The misery caused by too much alcohol is well known; the one caused by too much methamphetamine is newer and therefore scarier. It seems to be on the rise and it is turning a few unlucky souls into versions of the walking dead. Unemployable, but needing cash, they turn to crime. Many will end up dead or in jail. A few will beat the addiction and get their lives back.

What can be done? One thing is to stay away from the stuff, for starters.
