As stated by the World Health Organization or WHO, methamphetamine or Meth is second only to marijuana as the most widely abused illegal drugs in the world, and it is the most widespread synthetic drug produced and sold in the United States.
"Meth" is an incredibly addictive stimulant which can be smoked, injected, snorted, or taken orally. Meth users, especially during the "tweaking" or withdrawal phase, may experience severe psychosis and commit acts of extreme violence. Because adults may neglect the children in their care if they are addicted to the drug, the drug is increasingly becoming a significant factor in many child protective services cases.
Methamphetamine is commonly known by such slang names as speed, chalk, meth, ice, crank, crystal, glass, and uppers. This is a very powerful addictive stimulant which dramatically affects the brain and the rest of the central nervous system. Meth which is made with relatively low-quality, low-cost materials, is some kind of bitter-tasting, odorless, white crystalline powder which dissolves in alcohol or water easily. Either ephedrine or pseudoephedrine is used as the active ingredient. Not surprisingly both of these active ingredients are found in over-the-counter cold medicines. Most Meth "cookers" use all the day to day products including lithium batteries, drain cleaner, and engine-starter fluid to make or "cook" a powder which can be snorted, smoked, injected, or added to any beverage.
Like various ways of taking Meth the price of the drug varies across the United States. It may also vary depending on the supply and conditions. A standard price of a pound of methamphetamine is listed below:
