I am not a fan of Crystal Meth. Hell, I'm not a fan of most drugs. But when it comes to Crystal Meth, I put my foot down. Wanna smoke weed? Do it. Some coke or E? I'm not gonna stop you. I won't even judge you! It's just not my thang.
But Crystal Meth? Oh, fucker, you better step back and think again.
I know TOO MANY people who have played with this drug, and I've seen how it does anything but play back with you. Shit gets serious. REAL serious. Like, death serious. Homelessness serious. Male prostitution serious. Jail serious.
Thank heavens for Darren Aronofsky, better known as the director of Requiem For a Dream (man did THAT movie make heroin look awesome or WHAT!?) Darren has directed four, count em, four ultra-disturbing Public Service Announcements about Crystal Meth.
And you know what? I think they're artful, dramatic, and DISTURBING enough to maybe get the message across.
What do YOU think?
