Meth Is Flooding California — and You Can Blame Mexican Cartels | VICE News
> The trafficking route has sparked a resurgence of meth-related concerns in Southern California. A study produced by the San Diego Association of Governments determined that meth use among adult arrestees had dropped sharply after the 2006 pseudoephedrine regulations, but found it had almost returned to 2005 levels by 2013.

What Cookies and Meth Have in Common - The New York Times
As a psychiatrist, I have yet to meet a patient who enjoys being addicted to drugs or compulsively overeating.

Why would anyone continue to use recreational drugs despite the medical consequences and social condemnation? What makes someone eat more and more in the face of poor health?

High Hitler: How Nazi Drug Abuse Steered the Course of History
The German writer Norman Ohler lives on the top floor of a 19th-century apartment building on the south bank of the river Spree in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Visiting him there is a vertiginous experience. For one thing, he works – and likes to entertain visitors – in what he calls his “writing tower”, a flimsy-seeming, glass-walled turret perched right on the very edge of the roof. (Look down, if you dare, and you will see his little boat moored far below.) For another, there is the fact that from this vantage point it is possible to discern two Berlins, one thrusting and breezy, the other spectral and grey. To our left, busy with traffic, is the Oberbaum Bridge, where there was once a cold war checkpoint, and beyond it the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall, its doleful length rudely interrupted by the block of luxury flats that went up in 2013. As for the large building immediately opposite, these days it’s the home of Universal Music. Not so very long ago, however, it was the GDR’s egg storage facility.
