What is Meth?
Meth (methamphetamine) is also known as speed, chalk, ice, crystal, crank, glass, and uppers. Meth is a highly addictive central nervous system stimulant that can be smoked, snorted, taken orally, or injected. Users initially experience an intense "rush", followed by a period of increased physical and mental activity. Meth curbs appetite and sleep, and many users will use for several days before "crashing". Users describe feelings of euphoria, well-being, confidence, and invincibility while high on meth, while coming down is associated with extreme fatigue, lethargy, and depression.
