Effects of Methamphetamine Video

Methamphetamine EducationWelcome to our third in this series. We're going to cover methamphetamine today. Our bodies were developed over centuries to ingest certain foods, certain plants, certain animals and the further you get away from that, the more the body freaks out.

Methamphetamine is made this way. First of all, pseudoephedrine is extracted from a modern cold remedy. Then to boost its potency, they add the following ingredients:

  • Battery Acid
  • Drain Cleaner
  • Lantern Fuel
  • Anti-Freeze

Believe it or not, that is how methamphetamine is made. Now you'll see and understand the effects of it as I go over them.

Meth has the worst short-term effects of any drug I've ever seen. Keep in mind, these effects occur fast.
