Avon library’s film series ends

Methamphetamine is one of the hardest drugs to quit. Its abuse is ravaging rural communities and cities alike. National Geographic Channel correspondent Lisa Ling goes inside this global epidemic to find out what makes meth so addictive and destructive. Join the Eagle Valley Library District and the Eagle River Youth Coalition for a special screening and discussion of “The World’s Most Dangerous Drug” (NR), a documentary on methamphetamine, on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Avon Public Library.

According to National Geographic Channel correspondent Lisa Ling: “Meth really is the mother of all drugs. It’s the cheapest, dirtiest and most powerful drug in existence today. It’s also the fastest spreading. Meth doesn’t kill its addicts immediately. The process is slow, during which it takes an extreme physical and psychological toll. Meth literally rots people’s bodies – teeth, face and insides. Frankly, I was appalled by how ugly it made frequent users.”

“The World’s Most Dangerous Drug” is the final film in “Tackling Teen Topics,” a three-week film series geared toward teens and their parents. Refreshments will be provided. Film screenings are free and open to the public and may not be appropriate for all audiences. For more information on this show, call the Avon Public Library at 970-949-6797.
