Crystal meth makes you crazy

After 17 months in jail, world renowned cancer researcher, professor and meth addict/dealer Marcello Arsura couldn’t have said it better. Mr. Asura was sentenced to 35 months in prison for drug dealing while working for The University of Tennessee Health Science Center as a pharmacologist.

“I do really feel like a fool,” he said. “I had everything to lose and I chose to lose it.”

This was a man respected and looked up to by so many and he managed to lead a double life. As a degreed professor in the pharmaceutical field, he fully knew the effects of the drug that he ingested several times daily, yet crystal meth had a grip so tight on him that he threw all reasoning aside. It was only after 17 months in jail awaiting sentencing for drug trafficking and possession that he was able to reflect logically on his experience. Looking back at the arrest video he sees a man violently kicking and screaming trying to break the arresting officer’s grasp. Today he doesn’t even recognize that man.

“Crystal meth makes you crazy,” Arsura said, shaking his head. “It obliterated my ability to objectively assess my behavior. I did things I didn’t think I did. It was like I had out-of-body experiences.”

Aside from being sentenced to 35 months in prison, he was also ordered to write an essay on his experiences with illegal drugs and untreated depression. He also says he would like to re-enter the world of research; possibly studying the effects of meth on the human brain.

My hope is that a man with his knowledge and now real-world experience can turn this experience into something good. I truly believe these things happen for a reason and Mr. Arsura now has first hand experience with crystal meth that could potentially prove invaluable in the research world.

    Yes, this is a very unfortunate case. But what about the many thousands of people for whom this drug is a harmless pleasure indulged in occasionally? As it stand at the present time, it is the legal drugs alcohol and tobacco that have the most devastating health effects on Western culture.

I took them pills for about 2 yrs. then I went to cokecaine I spent over 200 dollars a night on coke I don’t even remember where the money came from. then one night this guy that I was talking to just so he would hook me up really pissed me off cuz he didn’t had me much of nothing so I decided to try meth but the only reason I did it was becuase I angry an someone put a bet that I would not try it. Well guess what I used an the first hit of doing Meth was the end of it. I started using met on a daily bases. I went from being 160 to 140 in just 2 weeks. No one could stop me. I at least smoked 3 grams a night an that’s quite alot of meth to be intaking an alot of money. but it was not just me smoking I met lots of people that did Ice we all got really crazy on it. But i loved the way i looked but then when I was just 17 I got pregnate by a guy that didn’t do ice but he did all difrent kind of drugs like bars an coke I got off of it but I decided to have my child my son ha been born early becuase i had lots of problems with my body an with not knowing i was prgnate for 3 months I was still doing all sorts of drugs. ended up being my son is just fine now an i thank god for that. but I still have not seen his father since the day I told him I was pregnate. well 7 months after I had my son I ended up relapsing an using meth again. with all the stress that wa going on i wanted to nubb all my feelings I ended up meeting a new crowed that a old friend intourdsed to me An i ended up dating this guy that was in an outta of jail I ended up leaving my son at home every day with my parents an thae drugs started taking control over my life again becuase i allowed it then one night me an a friend decided to go out with two older older menI mean older then my father an this guy ended up shotting me up with 70cc of meth an I blacked out my friend had left an she left me there with this guy only for a couple hours she told me becuase i couldnt remember but that guy had locked eme in a bedroom when he found out that i was not all there an in that time before i he left me locked in that room he had taking my pants off I blacked out while this was happening I didnt know what was going on my bestfriend found me purple in the face an not responding but she finlally I came too an I was very very lucky becuase I NEW I felt i was dying an someone was trying to help me come to.  I want people to know that this is just a little off my story i have had alot more then this happen to me over that one hit of that drug it made me lose my wonderful life i almost died i lost my son for alwhile which i finally got him back an have sobered up but that drug sffects everyone in alot of ways they may be good for a month or so but trust me that goes very fast an this is just my experince  i cant tell anyone not to do it but trust me it does go down a bad path an it will catch up to you an ruin your life like it did mine thank you for reading
