Importance

This is an important social issue because of a high percent of teens take meth. It is mostly teens because you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer at a young age. It is mostly from depression and pure pressure. Not that I am not the farthest person away from depression but that I am the person who is farthest away from using drugs. Another higher percentage is from young adults. The older adults don't really take meth so it is more scary for the youth because they can get addicted easily. The elder are as smart as Albert Einstein with experience in life.
