That headline “Notevenonce.com” may confuse many. But its relevance cannot be understated. This is the name of a website that warns on the ill-effects of methamphetamine abuse. I picked this up from a Nat Geo documentary that was aired last week titled “The World’s Most Dangerous Drugs.”
An eye opener, Meth (commonly referred) was said to be 3.5 times more stronger than coccaine and is spreading fast since its very easy to manufacture. Methamphetamine is an ingredient mostly used as a decongestant in medicines. The drug leads to dangerous after effects like hallucinations, delusions and even violent outburts.
Knowing that even the most stringent US laws have not been able to restrict its spread, Meth may find some ready takers in India as well. Remember the rave party at Pune a few months ago and because of the fact that most coccaine users belonged to influential families, none were booked.
Meth can kill hundreds of our young people and a lot may be needed to be done to keep the killer drug at bay.
