Crystal meth seems like it is taking over the elicit drug market. Even celebrities like Ryan O’Neal and Fergie were/are hooked. The consequences of meth use can be devastating not only on the inside but also on the outside. Many of us are familiar with the “faces of meth” pictures, but the question remains: why does meth destroy people’s faces? Another question I have after watching the below video is: Do I need a goatee or mustache before I can take meth? But I digress…watch the video and then we will move on to the “whys.”

Now that you have some idea of what meth can make you look like, here is why-
Because meth causes the blood vessels to constrict, it cuts off the steady flow of blood to all parts of the body. Heavy usage can weaken and destroy these vessels, causing tissues to become prone to damage and inhibiting the body’s ability to repair itself.
Think about that-when you take meth it is basically like your are slowly killing your flesh. If your flesh isn’t getting oxygen rich blood, of course it is going to make you look like a corpse. Add to the dying skin acne, and crank bugs and you have really got a mess on your hands. In our society looks are so important, so even if you don’t care about rotting your innards, maybe you will think about rotting your outside before you ever consider meth.
