  1. ICE.
    The most evil , destructive drug to ever come along.
    Just don’t try or do it, it’s really really not worth it.
    Studies have shown for each person who uses ,at least
    five others are directly effected e.g. family,friends,neighbors etc.
    If you want to become insane take ice. The mental health clinics
    are being overwhelmed with ice casualties.
