Why the Connection between Crystal Meth and
the Gay Community?
is a taking a strong hold on the gay community. This talk will focus
on talking about what crystal meth is and why it is such a
attractive drug in the gay community. The effects of crystal meth on
the body and the parallel rise in syphilis and antibiotic-resistant
gonorrhea will also be discussed. There will be time left for
questions and discussion.
