Meth and Shawshank Redemption: All In A Day’s Reading


Day’s Verse:

“O Lord, there is no God like You in heaven above ir on earth beneath, keeping covenant and showing loving kindness to Your servants who walk before You with all their heart.”

1 Kings 8:23


Interesting Quote:

“The unrelenting pressure of trying to keep up with the line has encouraged widespread methamphetamine use among meatpackers. Workers taking ‘crank’ feel charged and self-confident, ready for anything. Supervisors have been known to sell crank to their workers or supply it in free in return for certain favors, such as working a second shift. Workers who use methamphetamine may feel energized and invincible, but are actually putting themselves at much greater risk of having an accident. For obvious reasons, a modern slaughterhouse is not a safe place to be high.”
