"I did meth for the first time when I was 15, and by the time I was 17, I was using it once or twice a week. I can safely say that although many fine writers, Reding included, have attempted to tackle drug use in small town America — and have exposed the uncomfortable truth that drugs are more prevalent in rural than urban areas — none of them really understand the subject. These outsiders routinely accept a sensationalized version of meth’s power: it is a uniquely addictive drug that ruins everyone it touches. But most people who take meth and other illicit drugs are otherwise normal — they just like to get lifted every once in a while." (04/06/11)
