Meth is bad

Not a controversial position, I know.  But when you read an article like this, it really drives the point home.

1/4 to 1/3 of all burn victims in these midwest hospitals are meth addicts.  They're blowing themselves up cooking meth.  Naturally, most do not have health insurance, and the unpaid cost of treatment is driving the hospital burn units out of business.  Then society gets to pay the freight on people that are permanently disfigured, blind, etc., in addition to being addicts.

In all honesty, it makes one wonder if a China-style Opium solution needs to be put into play here.

P.S. No, I obviously don't mean that literally.

If it wasn't costing taxpayers money to treat these ass-clowns, my sole response to this would be a Nelson Muntz-esque "Ha, ha."
