Meth Destroying Families in Texas

What can I do if someone in my family is struggling with meth addiction? Unfortunately, meth addiction is becoming a horrifyingly widespread reality among hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of families in Texas. Methamphetamine has been called one of the worst or most dangerous drugs in the world, and now its usage is exploding all over Texas. Part of the problem is the sheer scale of the meth dealing business. “Mexican drug gangs are flooding Texas with more and more cheap, pure methamphetamine, according to law officers, drug criminals and statistical data,” said the Ames Tribune. “Federal drug enforcement analysts estimate more than 90 percent of the meth in Texas is from Mexico,” they added. And the way that Texas has been flooded with meth has severely damaged families all across the state. Click here to learn more about teens and meth.
