What Is Crystal Meth?
Crystal methamphetamine, or crystal meth for short, is a white crystalline drug that directly affects the nervous system. It can be crushed and snorted through the nose, smoked or injected using a needle.
Crystal Meth Effects
Crystal meth is highly addictive and temporarily results in a burst of energy and a sense of confidence and happiness that can last from 6-24 hours.
Physical Side Effects & Signs That Someone Is Using Crystal Meth
Physical side effects include permanent brain damage, tremors, and decreased appetite. But some of the most obvious signs that someone is using crystal meth are the large meth sores or meth mites and orange leathery skin. The drug reduces blood flow and prevents your body from repairing itself. As a result, most users will develop large blister sores on their face and leathery, off-colored skin tones.
NERD NOTE: Some men and women are drawn to Crystal Meth because extreme weight loss is one of the initial side effects. However, user weight loss is not permanent. After regular use, your body becomes accustomed to the effects of Crystal Meth and you’ll actually start to experience weight gain.
