Why are there so many meth users-in South East Asia?

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Why are there so many meth users-in South East Asia?

:stir:


East and Southeast Asia are the world's largest markets for synthetic drugs. With rising demand for methamphetamines, health is not the only thing to suffer. The drug trade is also slowing development, say experts.
The use of synthetic drugs, particularly methamphetamines, is escalating rapidly in East and South East Asia. Powerfully addictive stimulants, methamphetamines can deliver a euphoric high but come with devastating side effects including brain damage, psychosis and severe decay as well as loss of teeth known as "meth mouth" - a tell-tale sign which could become increasingly recognizable across the region.

its cheap and it fucks u up
largest manufacture is across the border in the shan /kachin states in Myanmar
which the government does NOT control
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Meth Capital of the world: USA ?

So according to professor Google,USA tops the list and coming in second is AUSTRALIA,I guess I’ve never seen an African on meth so Africa clearly doesn’t make the list.

Well meth-heads tend to be ignorant and uneducated, which probably describes most SE Asians.
Sounds like a match made in heaven.

If you buy me lots of gear,
I'll happily suck you dry my dear,
I play more naughty than nice,
When you fill me full of ice,
Fill the pipe, light it, give it a twirl,
and watch be me your dirty girl,
If you smell don't worry I'll hold my breath,
As long as you get me high on all of your meth

Probably more meth users in Australia and NZ. And more hillbilly heroin users in the US. [Mod edit: Name calling removed.]

Australia (and NZ) suffers from the fact that they can't get any coke and meth is easy to make from legally available sources. In the UK we don't have a meth problem because you can get skag and coke aplenty. I'm surprised NZ doesn't have a bigger heroin problem given that they grow huge amounts of opium poppies.
