Kelly Lyndon has had personal experience watching her a friend going through the stages of taking Meth. Her novel, Crystal Reign, shares her story and other information about the drug.
Her personal experiences watching friends and family’s lives devastated by methamphetamine made her realise there'e not enough information out there.
Watching her family friend go through it, she says: "I can only describe him as an animal."

She also reacts to the recent interview Graeme conducted with NZ Drug Foundation head Ross Bell advocating for the decriminalisation of all drugs.
