Quarter Of Teens See Benefits To Meth

‘Nearly a quarter of teens say it would be “very easy” or “somewhat easy” to gain access to methamphetamine, a survey released Tuesday shows.

One in three teens also believes there is only a “slight risk” or “no risk” in trying meth once or twice, according to the study by The Meth Project, a nonprofit anti-drug group that produces gritty ads to show the perils of meth abuse.

And about one in four teens said there are benefits to using meth. Twenty-four percent of teens agreed with the statement that meth “makes you feel euphoric or very happy,” while 22 percent said meth “helps you lose weight” and 22 percent said it “helps you deal with boredom.”‘
