Bainbridge-  Georgia College students will soon get a graphic E-mail warning them of the dangers of methamphetamine use.  The E-mail features disgusting photos of Meth users with oozing sores and will be sent to more than 260,000 college students in Georgia. 

The E-mail is being sent by the University System of Georgia. They want students to know the dangers of the highly addictive drug which has become popular with student who might use it to help stay awake to study. At Bainbridge College counselors say it's not enough to send an E-mail and more talks are needed with students. 

"Well, I think maybe to also to back up things with seminars and workshops. E-mails are okay, but I still think we need to do face to face contact and have promotional things that will get students involved," said Arlene Cook, Bainbridge College Counselor. 

Bainbridge College plans to form a drug awareness committee and hold regular meetings and project to warn students of the dangers and encourages other universities to do the same.
