Hello, My name is Tom Monson and I'm an award-winning writer and filmmaker and I have personally interviewed hundreds of drug addicts, treatment consolers, judges, doctors, parents, and law enforcement personnel about drugs and I have yet to hear a good story unless it ended with, "and then I got off drugs."
The reason I got into drug education was my son was killed by a drunk driver and I was going to produce a short film about the dangers of drunk driving but when an emergency department doctor told me about Methamphetamine. I was blown away! I thought it was something like amphetamines that I knew, you know trucker's friend, cross tops, bennies, just your run-of-the-mill speed. When I found out how it was destroying lives and families, I knew I had to sound the warning and that was the beginning of my journey into the world of addiction and death. That's when I produced Drug Wars, Crank County.
And like I said, "Death is forever!"
So here is the part of the whole story that is the big lie. All drugs are dangerous! Even the one that your doctor gives you for whatever ails you. Anything that changes the chemistry of your brain has the potential to do permanent brain damage. It's all a big lie to tell you that any drug is safe and the drugs that have achieved legal status in one state or the other, is going to hurt you just like alcohol and tobacco can hurt you.
