    55% Of Murder Cases Involved Meth

    <snip>

    SAN DIEGO -- A new study showed 55 percent of homicides and suicide cases in San Diego involved methamphetamine, 10News reported.

    Four years ago, Claudia Sinkule's daughter, Nicole, was killed by her boyfriend who was addicted to meth.

    "Her boyfriend came into her apartment and killed her in her sleep. He beat her with a hammer 13 times and that was the end of her life," said Sinkule

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I watched an Oprah show and the guy kept saying he believed he had killed his wife, sister-in law and brother in law because of the meth.
    interesting Thanks!

    That is horrid. And another reason to make weed legal. Isolate the drug users from weed smokers instead of forcing them to go into places where they will be exposed to drugs of this nature. And get a reduction of new meth users. It is just my theroy. It wont stop them all but it will definitly help some. Not pushing an agenda here either.
    The reason weed is a gateway drug is they keep them all in the same house.

    I'm not at all surprised, but it's nice to read that there's actual, hard evidence linking methamphetamine to some of these horrific crimes we read about daily.

    I think it's a good theory.
    Marijuana is decriminalized to just a fine equivalent to a traffic ticket for possession in many states.

    I am not a smoker either, yet i feel it would be beneficial to decriminalize it.
    There is a big difference between pot smokers and those into hardcore drugs.

    Does California really have stores that sell marijuana baked goods such as sweets and marijuana for those who need it for health reasons? I saw it on an HBO show once, however i've never been out West..

    Sounds a lot like the Terry and Darleen Anderson double homicide cold case (in the WS cold case forum.) Meth, rage killing, etc. Thanks for the article!

    That's scary, as I hear meth use is common in many areas of many states.

    YVW, DK......It certainly explains the overkill doesn't it -- not just in the Anderson's case, but cases we read about every day.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Wow--I agree with all of you. This is very scary.

    I read that pepper spray has no effect on those crazed on meth, and those ineffective if used for personal protection. Something about the chemical response is mitigated by the meth.

    Need to use special tasers---not that I have one!
