No offense to any Idahoians, but your state was not exactly on my must see list to begin with. But yesterday I saw the link to the Idaho Meth Project and now I’m just flat out afraid of you. Has anyone else seen these videos? My friend passed it along to me yesterday and then I heard it was on dlisted so it must be making the rounds. But here’s one in case you haven’t come across them yet. It isn’t pretty.
So after scaring myself with these I decided to dig a little deeper and checked out the Meth Project website and it is equally scary. It turns out Idaho isn’t the only state circling the ads. Its also Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Montana and Wyoming. If the goal here was to scare people away from trying meth they’ve certainly succeeded with me (you know, because I think about being a meth head all the time.) But they’ve also successfully scared me from visiting any of their states any time soon. A tourism killer if I’ve ever seen one.
I sort of feel like I should be apologizing to you for this post. Sorry ya’ll.
