"The cops that were standing there [said] he was on methamphetamine," said neighbor Jennifer Williams. She says the woman who escaped the home provided that information to the responding officers.
Hey does this tuff do that to you? I didnt know meth addicts could get it together enough to do anything dangerous other than by accident. I mean I dont know I just assumed form observation.

I would guess it depends on the person but I've seen them get pretty crazy amped up. Other than that everything I know about meth I learned from Breaking Bad.

I had an inlaw who got hooked on it with a girl friend. They used to do crazy things like sell everything they had to buy ingredients to make more and he used to go out in the desert and make it to sell to support his habit. It was awful to watch doubly so because I had known him so many years as a person not acquainted with the drug. And I saw a girl acting weird one time at a convenience store where I was waiting in the car around the side. I called the police because I thought she was having a fit or something. Turns out she was on meth. But she acted like she was unaware of the outer world.
I guess things affect people differently.
If it's drugs that have made people go cray then I want everyone tested and jailed/hospitalized. I am disabled and this crap is beginning to scar me. I dont have to watch horror shows to get traumatized.

It's got to be the drugs although I'm not sure if they act crazy on the drugs or coming off the high. Not sure how that works. You're right though you can save the movie money and just drive downtown at night, holy crap you can see some crazy stuff.

Well, look at it this way. A certain quack doctor used to inject his patient with a "vitamin" concoction during the years that the patient engaged in certain activities commonly associated with violence. Recent reviews of the surviving medical records strongly suggest that what the doctor was using was crystal meth. The patient was Adolph Hitler.
