My “Defense of Meth” Article Runs at AlterNet

Posted: June 25th, 2013 | Filed under: amphetamine, drugs, history, media bias, methamphetamine | 2 Comments »


AlterNet published my article under the title, “Nazis Used Meth? 5 Things to Know About One of the World’s Favorite Stimulants.” In it I expose the sensationalism and fearmongering common in methamphetamine coverage by critiquing a recent Huffington Post article, “Nazis Took ‘Meth’ Pills to Stay Alert, Boost Endurance During World War II, Letters Reveal.”

Thanks to Kristen Gwynne (@kristengwynne) at AlterNet.
