HOW METH AFFECTS THE MIND AND BODY
When we think of the drug problem in the U.S., the first thing we almost always think of is the opiate epidemic. The opiate epidemic usually takes the spotlight. And not without good reason. The majority of all drug deaths every year are at the hands of opiates.
When we think of drug addiction and alcoholism, our thoughts almost always turn to the addiction itself, the unbreakable habit, the lifestyle, the strained familial ties, the legal troubles, the difficult day-to-day living situations, and so on.
Methamphetamine is a white odorless but bitter, crystalline powder. It dissolves in water or alcohol. Methamphetamine is highly addictive and mind-altering. As methamphetamine poses no health benefits to users, it is also highly illegal to use.
