Photos Before and After: This is what Drugs Will Do!

Saw this on another forum and thought it was pretty disturbing!

Check out the photos of before and after of people who looked nice when they started, and the after photos when they looked disturbing, even aged beyond their years!

Creepy and gross! That's one of the reasons I would never do drugs! But I'm not all that surprised, drugs kill your body.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Why do a lot of them have cuts on their face?

Never mind...I just read the article.

I think it's like cystic acne that develops from the drug use, not acutal cuts...

I am assuming that these folks were using Methalamphetamines; Crystal Meth and such. That is the drug that will kill you the fastest
My oldest brother was a herion and methadone addict for many years. He declined slower than these folks but finally, 6 years ago, died of an overdose on a liverand kidneys ravaged by Hep C and other things. Purposeful or accidental, we shall never know. His son, age 38 and extrememly handsom and intelligent , is also a meth addict, now.
The drug addict is your neighbor, your brother, your children . . Not some stranger.

That's that hard A$$ drugs. Meth, cocaine, acid,"Magic" Mushrooms, I'll just say weed don't do that.... But that's scary stuff there. I'm never ever in my life going to do that.

Trouble rides a fast horse.....(Shrug)..... I ride a faster one.

LOL! And I think that's pretty much the point of the campaign. They are hoping to scare kids. It just might work, at least for a few!!
