I've too never understood why someone would want to put those chemicals in their bodies. I also don't understand someone huffing paint.

People should stick with marijuana and mushrooms. Natural and you won't get hooked (or steal copper wire).

Copper is the easiest metal to steal. It's in new home, old home, old barns. Highest price metal per pound that's accessible. I know a guy that got off meth that could go around and tell you ever place he stole copper out of.

Escape life same as a hard core alcoholic. It was easy to grow up poor when I was a kid. Lots of pressure today for kids to own shiny objects and have somebody else's name on their clothes.

Find an old log in the thicket and make one of the coon traps like Billy Coleman made in the book "Where the Red Ferns Grow". Put you a nice shiny copper penny down in the hole. When you walk up and check the set and have a meth head that wont let go, just set there and pester them all day until their high wears off. Sort of like poking a monkey at the zoo with a stick? Make sure you have your kids with you so they can have fun as well.

Teens express concern about anxiety and depression among peers, feel day-to-day pressures

Seven-in-ten U.S. teens said anxiety and depression is a major problem among people their age in the community where they live, according to a Pew Research Center survey of teenagers ages 13 to 17 conducted in fall 2018. An additional 26% cited anxiety and depression as a minor problem.

About three-in-ten teens (29%) said they felt tense or nervous about their day every or almost every day, and 45% said they felt tense or nervous sometimes. About a third of teen girls (36%) reported feeling this way every day or almost every day, compared with 23% of teen boys.

Academic and social pressures are among the reasons cited by experts who have studied teen depression. The Center’s survey asked about some of those pressures teens face in their daily lives. About six-in-ten teens (61%) said they personally felt a lot of pressure to get good grades, while roughly three-in-ten reported a lot of pressure to look good and fit in socially (29% and 28%, respectively).


With schools being online or outright closed in some areas this spring, a lot of kids that were getting mental health help at school were not able to do so and of course new issues are popping up since.

They are watching the fake perfect lives of non-country folk on their tvs, computers, in their pocket, in their ears, in their eyes, in their games, in their avatars and in their dreams. But those fake perfect lives don't exist, and thus kids today are chasing smoke where there is no fire.
The desperation leads to abuses of all kinds. And avoidances of all kinds.... Do the math on availability vs cost vs potency and you'll find your neighborhoods' biggest problem and means to avoidance....

They're hanging out with everyone. That's how social media works. Their friend group isn't enough of a control, as it once was...

My dads neighbor’s kid was like that. Both parents had jam up jobs but he decided while he was working a job at Delta that he wanted to try meth. Lost the job. Got kicked out of his home. He moves in with his grandparents. He wont get a job. Says he needs transportation. Grandparents buy him an older toyota pickup. Tells them he has a job in town. Even leaving early and coming home late. Grandparents noticed one day in town his truck wasn’t at work. They call the place of course with no record of his employment. He pawned the title on the truck. Then couldn’t understand why the grandparents were ticked off about it.
