There shocking mug shots collected by the sheriff’s office in Multnomah County, Oregon, are part of a anti-drug campaign that shows the disturbing truth to what heavy drug use does to a person. The campaign’s aim is to use these before and after photos of drug users’ faces in the hope that they grab teenager’s attentions by appealing to their vanity.
The most hard hitting feature of these photos is how quickly the drug addicts’s face gets damaged. Faces that were once normal, and even attractive, metamorphose over just a few years and sometimes months into skeletal, bruised and toothless wrecks.
All these photos are part of a 48 minute documentary called ‘From Drugs to Mugs’, created by Deputy Bret King. King hopes that the documentary, which is available on DVD, will help scare kids straight by showing them concrete evidence of damage that can occur within months from using meth, heroin or cocaine.
