There seems to be a growing hysteria in the national media regarding the use of methamphetamine. But haven't we seen it all before? I'm sure (but I have no proof) that the cover of Newsweek was dedicated to LSD in the 70s, Ecstasy in the 80s, and Cocaine in the 90s. Heck, marijuana was probably on the cover in the 60s.
And the story is always the same. The current drug of fear will destroy us, we need more prisons to stop it, but some how, some way, mankind survives into the next decade when some new drug will grace the cover of the weekly magazines.
