Fun With Lexis-Nexis: Like Meth for the Media

Bear with us for a moment: A quick search on LexisNexis reveals that in the past month, there have been no less than 270 articles about crystal meth — and that's excluding the latest issue of Newsweek, which is weighed down with coverage of the drug. So, for the sake of math, let's say there's been 275 media mentions of meth (print only, because factoring in the tv news buzz would probably double the numbers) in the past month. That means that, every day for the past 31 days, there has been 8.87 articles per day about meth.

Clearly, we're dealing with a media abuse problem. But there's hope — we happen to know of a few very reputable inpatient programs for these editors.
