Excellent and shocking documentary of a Midwestern girl.

I was absolutely shocked from this documentary! I recently saw this at the Big Muddy Film Festival and did not expect to see such beautiful Iowa sunrises and sunsets shining on corn fields- being intertwined with a tragic drug story of a young girl named Amber, hooked on Speed.

I was amazed at how Amber was so appealing and yet still very responsible for the tragic day (which has some hard to look images of "the incident") and how Amber's family was just one of the many families that was hooked on these Meth. drugs from just a small town in Iowa.

I have also heard of another Speed/Crystal Meth. in the Midwest documentary that MTV is doing. Obviously these documentaries are going to make this problem in our Heartland more public and hopefully discourage teenagers from using these drugs from seeing some of these truly sad stories.

I give the POOR MAN'S DOPE documentary an overall rating of 5 out of 5 stars.
