• What Is Meth

    Methamphetamine belongs to the amphetamine family. It is a powerful upper that produces many super feelings along with a variety of adverse reactions. In its pure hydrochloride form, known as crystal meth, it is more potent, colorless, and easier to make than amphetamine. Meth is usually white or slightly yellow, depending on the cooking process and how it is rinsed. I have seen pink and even green colored meth.

  • How It Is Made

    There are a couple ways to make meth and many ingredients are used. And believe it or not, most of the ingredients used to make meth can be found right in your home. And handling these toxic ingredients of meth, as well as mixing them, is very hazardous to your health as well as it is very hazardous the environment.

    Meth is made from a very easy recipe and can be cooked and ready in 6 to 8 hours in a mobile meth lab where the cookware can be relocated to avoid detection of any fumes or vapors that are associated with the making of meth. It costs about $50 to $140 to make one ounce of meth that can be sold for as much as $1200.

  • Meth Lab

    A meth lab is a clandestine drug lab that is a collection of materials and ingredients used to make crystal and is made mostly from common household ingredients. These ingredients are mixed and cooked together and the harmful chemical mixtures can remain on household surfaces for months or years later.

  • Methamphetamine Withdrawal

    Withdrawal from methamphetamine is not, by itself, medically dangerous. Generally, people need more sleep during this period and within a few days will begin feeling much better.

    Upon beginning detox from methamphetamine, users may have medical issues that are caused or exacerbated by the drug. For instance, attention must be given to infections, including abscesses (from injection) or skin infections (from picking). Also common are lung problems, including painful or difficult breathing, and burns resulting from methamphetamine use (e.g., pipe burns on the lips) or manufacturing (e.g., chemical burns).
