Crystal Meth / Methamphetamine / Ice – Educational Video #2 – Local police chief talks about the Meth problem in the land of Rocori. Producer: Duane Kuss, WOW Training.

Methamphetamine users feel a short yet intense “rush” when the drug is initially administered. The immediate effects of methamphetamine include increased activity and decreased appetite. The drug has limited medical uses for the treatment of narcolepsy, attention deficit disorders, and obesity. Most amphetamines distributed to the black market are produced in clandestine laboratories. Methamphetamine laboratories are, by far, the most frequently encountered clandestine laboratories in the United States. The ease of clandestine synthesis, combined with tremendous profits, has resulted in significant availability of illicit methamphetamine.

    @zhudi8682 Meth addicts in the Early stages act &? behave normal. So its not noticed by others around them, they gradually neglect their responsibilities. Then it all just unravels all at once by that time its a little to late to do anything as they are deep into their addiction & can care nothing else expect to obtain more meth.

    meth is pretty nasty, i did it once hated the paranoia that it gave me made me almost schizophrenic, only did it once, never will do it again, but the withdrawl of that one time was so fucking long. I have adhd and that probably has something to do with why it made me so paranoid, and i am perscribed vyvanse, its like adderall xr? only you cant snort it or iv it, you just have to pop the pill and it lasts up to i think 16 hours.
