Meth or methamphetamine is an exceedingly addictive stimulant, influencing the central nervous system. Though, meth in small doses is legally prescribed for finite medical purposes, most recreational doses of meth are illegally manufactured. The National Drug Threat Assessment Theory in 2015 revealed the greatest drug threat in 33% of the responding areas was posed by meth, and that it was easily accessible in 42.2% of the responding areas. So to blame only America with all the problems related to drugs would be highly playing it down.
Meth, in colloquial language, is also known as “crank”, “crystal”, “glass”, or “rock candy”, and its colour ranges from white to light brown and resembles a heavy crystal which looks like ice. Though heavy users tend to inject or smoke meth, it can also be snorted or taken orally. A short but intense rush is produced soon after smoking or injecting meth. Meth causes a longer high, lasting for about half a day, if snorted. The feeling of euphoria is the main reason why addicts choose to take it recreationally.
