Interesting article. I often assumed that the toothless aggro weirdos I saw in downtown Tacoma were just hillbillies afraid of the Communists getting into Our Water (there's a weird pocket of anti-water-floriudation hysteria in rural Pierce County), but being hopped up on meth is another pretty good explanation.

Another reason meth sucks!

BEST SENTENCE IN THE WHOLE ARTICLE

"And stoned people rarely remember to brush their teeth."

The recent Newsweek article has a pretty good pic of meth mouth. OK, "good" is the wrong word.

That reminds me: UW Special Collections apparently has the records of the Seattle Anti-Flouridation League or somesuch... perhaps it was King County. They were active in the 50's... which is about the time the Communists proceeded in earnest to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids. Been meaning to thumb through this collection for a while now; I'll let ya know if I find anything exciting.

Interesting - and fallacious.

Several states have moved to make it harder for meth users to find the ingredients they need to make the drug. On Thursday, the federal government stepped in after a Senate panel approved legislation that would restrict the sale of cold and allergy medications containing pseudoephedrine, the active ingredient in meth.

If you're going to write about chemistry as a journalist, maybe should have a fucking clue, or buy an editor who does.
