Montana Meth

8.2/10 based on 17 votes

Montana Meth paints a broad, harrowing picture of the meth problem in Montana, which ranks second in the nation for teenage and adult abuse of the drug.

The filmmaker speaks with several addicts and recovering addicts including 16-year-old Graham, a former straight-A student and athlete reduced to a shifty-eyed dropout after one year of using meth; 22-year-old Crystal, whose life has fallen apart in the three years she has used the drug and 21-year-old Rhianna, who traded “hard sex” for meth before she stopped using a year ago.

Prominently featured is a member of the Chippewa Cree tribe known as “Weasel,” a meth user for half of his 22 years who lives with his addict father and whose girlfriend had her two children taken away because of meth use.

The cheapness and availability of meth – which one Montana tribal leader describes as an epidemic – is taking a huge toll on the local Native American population.

Montana Meth explores the physical and psychological damage caused by this particularly vicious drug, whose effects range from tooth decay and skin lesions to brain damage and death. It also shows law enforcement and the justice system’s efforts to grapple with the magnitude of the problem.

    “… which ranks second in the nation …”

    Which nation?

    This is the WORLD Wide Web.

    • el

      What do you mean “which nation”? This documentary focuses on places in the USA. So clearly they’re talking about the USA because that’s where the documentary was shot and where it directed it’s focus.

      Dude… Seriously??

  • Neon

    Yes, the accents were impossible to pin down… like some sort of strange bastardised dialect of English never heard outside whatever country that was!

    • jim beam

        Jim beam you are just simply retarded. What are you doing on a documentary channel? Isn’t Jerry Springer on somewhere?

        And more to the point, how on earth did you even post this comment? Basic counting is required to get past the spam protection.

        Your existence, your completely unjustified and probably useless existence bothers me as a taxpayer.

          Sorry but this comment, “your existence, your completely unjustified and probably useless existenece bothers me as a taxpayer” irritated me slightly.
          I think it’s the fact that you’re lording over someone else because you pay imaginary pieces of paper to large corporations as a part of the faceless workforce.
          You’re sitting there behind a computer condemning someone for not knowing the difference between ‘there’ and ‘their’ as if it’s some crime against humanity, as if the world hangs in the balance because some moron twelve year old misspelled a word by two letters.

          I think your existence is unjustified, and worse than useless, it’s probably counterproductive to the future of this planet.
          Why don’t you just straight up go and set fire to some rainforests and then post about how you did it as a taxpayer you pathetic, snivelling piece of filth.

          When the world dies we won’t be looking at the homeless uneducated masses sitting in the gutter eating cheeseburger crusts and listening to the sound of Britney Spears sucking off Jive Records execs to a beat but at the end of the day what we’ve got to realise is that we’re all humans so we’re all pieces of absolute shit.

          /endrant as I go to continue sucking this planet dry of every mineral that I fucking can through the straw I stick daily under the veil of ignorance that modern day media and government have so thoughtfully erected in order for me to be unable to grasp the scope of just how much we are facefucking our planet into unconsciousness.

        And Jim, FYI.. you’d be funnier if you understood contextual differences between “there”, “their” and “they’re” to say nothing of your grasp of basic punctuation. If you did, i’d think “a clever troll” but now the best thing I assume is “schizophrenic 19 year old with marginalized intelligence”

        Once again another internet user giving us a horrifying look at the stark, barren wasteland of American education.

    Those are normal accents from the northwestern United States.

  • Hauke

  • The Dead Pony

    This is why I do not drink coffee. Uppers are vile.

  • The Dead Pony

    Well this is a first for me. A bunch of enabled white kids who decided to participate in a posh documentary because they believe no one understands them. Jesus the cinnamon titty fucking Jew, it’s just you, me, and the rest of the world who have problems. Have fun with your coffee you high maintenance drug addicts…Starbucks+mommy+gangbang=the word for god in the lips and hearts of all children.

    • el

      er.. well most of them appear to be poor white trash if it makes you feel any better..

    You down there bellow! Nobody gives a rats ass about grammar errors. This isn’t a college Essay you bored Loser. Its sad that you can talk about Jesus in such a way. Its ok though because we are given free will but you will regret ever saying those words. God is not one to mess with. I’m surprised I don’t see you on this documentary with your hate against the world. Did you get physically touched as a child why can one human be so Evil.
