Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town by Nick Reding
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
4 stars for all the facts about meth,crystal meth, and the process that puts it into user's hands. The of this drug, from when it was commonly advertised and prescribed to its current status as a link between Mexican drug cartels and the American industrial food business is fascinating at the same time it is scary as hell. The author spends too much time trying to put a warm fuzzy face on small town USA, though, considering he makes the point early on that this is an problem for any size community. He started off researching from the small town point of view and never let's go, dragging in updates on people who have nothing new to add.
