The Crisis of Methamphetamine and Its Management: Preparation, Participation, and Prevention
Cunniff, Judith; Cunniff, Daniel T.; Kay, Kenneth D.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v1 n2 p1-8 2008
There is a drug crisis in the United States that is growing at an alarming rate. Its participants work in our businesses, government agencies, and schools. California leads the nation in drug use and until recently, Fresno County was the leader in methamphetamine production. This drug crisis is having a paralyzing effect causing loss of income, dysfunctional families, poverty, child abuse, increase in crime and death. California's Governor Schwarzenegger has supported various preventative initiatives and eradicating measures; however, the methamphetamine problem is well entrenched and keeps appearing in unsuspecting areas. This paper addressed how and where methamphetamine is produced, who participates in its use, ethical issues and decision making, and how we may prevent it from spreading.
