What do you think Benzedrine is? Yep, a methamphetamine. Here it is listed on a Pan Am airline menu under Service Items, maybe from the 1940s. It made nervous fliers much happier and calmer and it was given out for free. Maybe it would be useful for someone in Perth who hates flying. (Grace, I'll ask my supplier if she can get you some)
Our media reports the ice scourge, the ice epidemic, violence committed by ice addicts. The media has people so frightened that they are sure they going to be carved up in bed as they sleep by an ice addict. Police have an interest in talking it up. More money for them to fight against the 'ice epidemic'. This interesting graph was published in the Lancet magazine, a peer reviewed medical journal in Britain. I assume this study was carried out in Britain and I can't see why it would not apply here. No surprise that alcohol tops the list, dreadfully so when it comes to harm to others but do note the tiny amount of harm to others by methamphetamine users. Do we really have a huge Ice problem?
