    Shocking mug shots reveal toll of drug abuse

    Photo album comparing pre- and post-drug abuse. Stark contrasts for some of these folks, and some in even just a few months.

    My posts are meant to help think through possibilities and are strictly an additional opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

    O.M.G.

    I recall a few years ago seeing a huge poster of shots like these. I think it was produced by the Multnomah County Sheriff's office in OR? Showed it to my kids and will be sharing this with them as well.

    Why, why, why are so many people willing to do this to themselves? In an age where physical beauty plays perhaps too important a part in our society, this is completely the other end of the spectrum.

    I just don't understand.

    ETA - DUH! I see these pics are also from Multnomah County, but all different than the originals. Must be a huge problem up there - as it is in so many areas of our county today.

    those type of posters are up at jails & prisons here and in recovery centers & various other places

    I remember being shocked the first time I saw one

    I think they possibly work for awareness, not so much for prevention but that's just IMO
