The organization behind "Faces of Meth" has come out with yet another shocking video that shows, unflinchingly, the real effects of drug use. The campaign shows mug shots of drug addicts before they started abusing drugs, and after. Alongside each mug shot are details about how old the person is, and what they were arrested for. The age is especially horrifying, as most of the pictures look much, much older than the addicts' real age.

As we reported earlier this week, anti-drug campaign airtime is drying up, due to funding cutbacks, and competition from other causes like anti-cancer and anti-texting and driving.
