Methamphetamine abuse has become a tremendous challenge for the entire Nation.
Education, prevention, and community involvement are key parts of our National Strategy to reduce the demand for meth. People who know about the destructive effects of meth on the user and the community, are far less likely to use meth.
Please share what you learn about meth with everyone you know and together we will end the scourge of methamphetamine. What is methamphetamine? How is meth made? How does meth affect a user?
How does meth affect everyone else? Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant drug that dramatically affects the central nervous system.
It is usually illegally produced and distributed. Meth comes in several forms, including powder, crystal, rocks, and tablets.
Meth can be taken by swallowing, snorting, smoking, or injecting it with a hypodermic needle. Unlike drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin, which are derived from plants, meth can be manufactured using a variety of store bought chemicals.
The most common ingredient in meth is pseudoephedrine or ephedrine, commonly found in cold medicine. Through a cooking process the pseudoephedrine or ephedrine is chemically changed into meth. Many of these labs are not sophisticated operations and do not require sophisticated chemistry equipment.
And the people who cook the meth usually do not have any chemistry training. Cooking meth is relatively simple, but highly dangerous and toxic.
Superlabs produce large quantities of meth and supply organized drug trafficking groups that sell the drug in communities across the U. Small Toxic Labs produce smaller quantities of meth. These labs can be set up in homes, motel rooms, inside automobiles, and in parks or rural areas -- really almost anywhere.
With sustained use, a meth user can develop a tolerance to it. The user may take increasingly higher doses of meth trying to catch that high she first experienced. She may take it more frequently or may go on binges. She may change the way she takes meth. For example a user may have started by taking a pill, but as she develops a tolerance she may begin injecting it.
The injecting process
Addiction is likely. In the long term, a person using meth may experience irritability, fatigue, headaches, anxiety, sleeplessness, confusion, aggressive feelings, violent rages, cravings for more meth, and depression. They may become psychotic and experience paranoia, auditory hallucinations, mood disturbances, and delusions. The paranoia may lead to homicidal or suicidal thoughts.
The injecting process
A fairly common hallucination experienced by meth users is the so-called crank bug. The user gets the sensation that there are insects creeping on top of, or underneath, her skin.
The user will pick at or scratch her skin trying to get rid of the imaginary bugs. This scratching can create open sores that may become infected.
Meth reduces the amount of protective saliva around the teeth. High doses of meth can elevate body temperature to dangerous, sometimes lethal, levels. High doses can also cause convulsions.
Because meth is so addictive, the distance between the short and long term effects may not be very long. As you can imagine, all those toxic chemicals used in the meth manufacturing process take a toll on the environment.
Every pound of meth made can generate up to five pounds of toxic waste that may seep into the soil and groundwater. The manufacturing process also generates toxic fumes. These fumes can severely harm anyone exposed to them. Meth labs also generate highly explosive gases.

Meth also has a very serious impact on children. Many children are rescued from homes with meth labs or meth using parents.
Meth, chemicals, and syringes are all within reach of these children. Parents high on meth neglect their children.
Safer injecting practices
And the mental, physical, and emotional consequences for these Drug Endangered Children are often severe. Millions of our tax dollars are spent each year to clean up meth labs, to care for Drug Endangered Children, and to pay for law enforcement to deal with the meth problem. Photo provided by: Det.
