A bet they had a family special recipe that was handed down from generation to generation.

His neck looks way too wide and it looks like there are odd flaps or something.

I have looked at it several times because it puzzles me. Really, really strange.

He does look older than 54 and the daughter looks older than 34 is it?

I sure hope those boys use this as a wake-up call and get on the right track.

So sad and such a terrible waste of their young lives. :(

I don’t know, I’m still trying to figure out the big difference between meth and crack and before crack it was free-base.

I know meth isn’t the same as cocaine but isn’t it the same type thing? Smoking speed/upper?

Did crack make peoples teeth fall out? I don’t recall seeing so many toofless crackheads.

Why did it change? From cocaine to crack?

What causes the shifts in society? Crack seemed more city, and Meth seems more rural and backwoods.

I guess they need rural to make the stuff because of the kaboom factor and it somehow smells.

I just don’t understand it and I simply hate seeing those young boys screwing up their lives. I could slap that mom! But then on the other hand I feel like helping, too.

bah! Why do they do this?!!!

I can't tell either, but it sure looks like he OD'd on coumadin and then tied his front teeth to the trailer hitch and letterrip.

Watched the movie a few months ago.

Powerful, disturbing and depressing. But the meth didn’t do that, these folks were making moonshine or growing pot before they discovered the profits of meth. Poverty, in-breeding and tribalism are the root causes. It sort of reminded me of stories out of Afghanistan.

“What could possibly compel people to use meth?”

Simple. “Hard drugs” initially feel physically better than anything else. Imagine smoking a pipe and instantly feeling 10-100 times happier than you ever felt in your life. Nomatter how much filth, pain and suffering surrounds you. Doing one of these drugs even once will change your entire perception of happiness.

It is a full escape from mental illness/trauma, spiritual void, loneliness and/or poverty. The problem is that the brain readjusts itself and life without the drug feels even worse than before. That is the cause of addiction.

Meth is smoked, injected, orally ingested or snorted.

A large percent passes through the body (about 70% if I recall correctly). Meth dealers will host parties where users pay a flat fee. They have a large bucket in the bathroom for the party goers to "fill" during the course of the festivities. The urine is cooked down for the drug which is resold.

You have GOT to be kidding me! Dear God why do people do such a thing. So darn sad!

I can’t believe a mother would have her son involved in such destruction. That boy never had a chance.

Those boys are only a few years younger than my son...tears me up.
