Meth "won't go away" because it was never taken seriously as the dangerous drug that affects all aspects of life and the community it is. The system wasted so much time and energy to make a case of inner-city crack users, because it was easier and much cheaper to arrest and go after crack users than to go after meth users. Which is much more costly. Meth destroys everything it touches. It contaminates everything from the homes it's cooked in to the children living inside the homes. I once read that lawyers assigned to represent chronic meth users sometimes became sicken from just having to sit in the same room with a potential client. As the boy sweats out the meth fumes through pores. The system never got serious about the meth problem, because it would have been too expensive and they didn't want to use up all those federal dollars sent down to fight meth.
