Ravages of Crystal Meth Abuse

Five years after being crowned Miss Teen Oregon-World in 2009, photos of Jamie Lynn-France, 23, reveal the devastating impact of crystal meth abuse on the former beauty queen. Lynn is currently being held on $30,000 bail after being recently arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, heroin and suboxene, which is used to treat opiate addiction.

Police in Keiser, Oregon have released before and after photographs of Francis to highlight the shockingly terrible physical effects of crystal meth and other hard core drugs, along with the following statement: “Keizer Police Department would like to take this opportunity to caution against the use of illegal controlled substances because of the terrible long-term affects to the user, their families and our communities.”  What may at first seem like merely a canned warning is bellied by the deplorable living conditions in the family drug dealing home at the center of the Frances investigation. Young children were exposed to horrific and deplorable living conditions in what would be best described as a grotty drug den.

Crystal meth abuse, made famous in the hit TV program Breaking Bad is reaching epidemic proportions in America, where more than 13 million people over the age of 12 are believed to have tried the highly-addictive drug, according to a 2008 US government report.

Time-stamped images depicting the ravages of crystal meth abuse have begun to appear on the net, in an effort to shock people in to coming to their senses. Perhaps no other drug has the ability to so quickly ruin lives and to so dramatically alter physical appearances.
