Shooting up the messenger: Ads show the ugly side of meth

Laura Bauer has a great story about a series of anti-meth ads from Montana that government officials credit with cutting their drug rates almost in half. They're a little hardcore. My favorite?

A newspaper ad depicts a dirty public bathroom, graffiti on the wall and the toilet seat up, with the words, “No one thinks they’ll lose their virginity here. Meth will change that.”

Sadly, it doesn't look like we' re going to get the ads here. Kansas doesn't have the cash, and Missouri is leery of the whole thing. Here's a link to some of the ads.
