Photos: Faces Show Horrors of Meth Abuse

A new campaign against crystal meth shows the ravages of the drug on human faces.

The "Horrors of Methamphetamines," launched by  Rehabs.com, claims to show the physical self-destruction that the drug is capable of.

Researchers admit the photos are shocking but they may not do much to deter drug abuse, according to a Huffington Post report.

Locally, dangerous home-based meth operations have made headlines across the Lehigh Valley, including a fire scare in Lower Macungie in October.

A suspected $3.5 million meth ring that included the Lehigh Valley was busted in November.
