Published LTE: Albany, GA Herald ‘Legalize It’

Pubdate: Tue, 02 Nov 2010

I am surprised that as a journalist you have no clue why people use meth.  According to my news sources like the Denver Post, a majority of people use meth to stay awake or more alert.  Another sizeable portion use methamphetamine to lose weight.  These groups you rarely hear about because they do not become addicted as much as those who use it recreationally.

If Georgia really wants to become serious about the meth problems, it should legalize the sale to adults of the same amphetamines we give our Air Force and Navy pilots to go on long missions.  Since a pilot can have legal amphetamines to stay awake, why not my waitress who is working a 12-hour shift to make ends meet? My understanding is that would eliminate about 90 percent of the illegal meth market.
