National Meth Day Comes But Once A Year, So Use It Wisely, Please, If You Must Speed, Speed Responsibly

National Methamphetamine Awareness Day, 2006
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

Methamphetamine is a powerfully addictive drug that dramatically affects users’ minds and bodies. Chronic use can lead to violent behavior, paranoia, and an inability to cope with the ordinary demands of life. So pay no mind to Michael Knibb, an information-technology vice president at Citigroup, ran the sophisticated drug operation from the living room of his luxury apartment overlooking the United Nations, said Drug Enforcement Administration officials.

The 37-year-old Knibb — who makes an estimated $250,000 a year — allegedly toldmeth-user.jpg authorities that he had decided to make his own methamphetamines because he could not find a reliable drug dealer after moving to New York from Seattle two years ago.

Knibb was one of 10 alleged do-it-yourself drug makers busted this week as part of a federal anti-meth sweep dubbed Operation Red Fusion.

Yesterday was National Methamphetamine Awareness Day.*
