I look and these mug shots + the ones from the last bust + other meth pics on the internet and wonder just what makes this drug so attractive to some people....

Here's the deal with the drug. People like altering their minds and have for as long as they've been around. Cigarettes and alcohol are prime examples of this fact. Yes, tobacco alters your mind in several ways. The affects of alcohol are obvious. Humans are experimental by nature and when you're young, experimentation isn't buffered by wisdom of age. These people tried meth and found it to be so overwhelmingly enjoyable that they did it over and over and over. Before they realized what was happening, it had become their life focus. Meth hits the pleasure centers of the brain like no other drug. Meth works by flooding the brain with massive amounts of dopamine, a neurochemical normally released in small amounts in response to something pleasurable. Of course, the high comes at a cost. When the drug wears off, dopamine in the brain is depleted, and users are left feeling depressed, fatigued, and irritable. After heavy use, some people become psychotic and paranoid, and they may experience a state of "anhedonia," or an inability to feel any pleasure, which makes them crave the drug. As you can understand, this starts the never ending circle of meth addiction. Once hooked, they can feel no pleasure without it. Recovery, when and if possible, can take YEARS. http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/features/meth-101

This sheds more light on why people use: Why We Use Methamphetamine lacks the glamor that movies and music have imparted to cocaine and heroin. Typical users still tend to be low-income and white. "They take it because they want to work more hours and lose weight," Rawson says. "It's looked at as a functional tool, not a status symbol." Increase in sexually transmitted infections via meth-fueled gay orgies has gotten a lot of attention, but heterosexual men and women use it for sex, too. Meth Sex "Methamphetamine is associated with sexual behavior like no other drug," Rawson says. Meth enhances the sexual experience, but that's not all. "Because it has such a long effect, of 8-12 hours, and it can delay orgasms, people have these sexual marathons," Rawson says. Sleep doesn't get in the way, either, as long as there's a supply of meth. "You can get high and party for 24, 48, 72 hours without stopping," I know that sleep deprivation can permanently damage the brain all by itself. Now add the damage from meth and you end up with a real-life zombie.
