National Methamphetamine Awareness Day

By  | 

Methamphetamine use has become a serious problem in the U.S.

Thursday local, state and federal officials spent the day educating others on the dangers of meth.

This marks the first National Methamphetamine Awareness Day.

Officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration were at Florida State University showing students real examples of the effects of meth. Students were shocked to see before and after pictures of meth users.

"I think it is horrible. Who would want to do that to their bodies? I just don't understand," said FSU sophomore Jessica Sandidge.

The National Clandestine Lab Database reports 131 meth lab incidents in Georgia for 2005 with 276 incidents reported in Florida.
