13.44% of High Schoolers Will be Dead in 5 Years

It’s true. The new federal website Just Think Twice links to Meth is Death, which tells us that:

  • 1 in 7 high school students will try meth
  • 99 percent of first-time meth users are hooked after just the first try
  • only 5 percent of meth addicts are able to kick it and stay away
  • the life expectancy of a habitual meth user is only 5 years.

Therefore, 13.44% of all high schoolers will be dead in 5 years. It’s true because our government told us it is true. (Even though they also tell us it’s all lies.)

(Hat tip: Hit and Run)
