Reader: Local prostitution rings are fueled by meth

Earlier this week, we posted about the

arrest of Robert Gonzales

, who's charged with

pimping out a foster child for cash and meth

.

The story rang true to one reader, who's witnessed similar tragedies and connects them to the addictive nature of the drug in question.

My ex from a few yrs ago gets pimped out by this guy she met here in Denver. There's a whole crime ring and there's more girls, and meth is the heart of it. And she's not the only gorgeous girl I've encountered who started prostituting because of a meth addiction. Meth ruins EVERYTHING.
