The war on drugs hasn’t slowed down at all. Drugs are affecting and killing the most beautiful and talented people alive. The most hard-hitting feature of these photos is how quickly the drug addicts’s face gets damaged. Faces that were once normal, and even attractive, metamorphose over just a few years and sometimes months into skeletal, bruised and toothless wrecks.
The below images come from the ‘Faces of Meth which is a project of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. This project began when a deputy in the Corrections Division Classification Unit, Deputy Bret King, put together mug shots of persons booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center. Deputy King worked with his co-workers in the Classification Unit to identify people who had been in custody more than once.
Check out the effects of drugs on people in such a short period of time.
