What is Meth?

Meth is a synthetic stimulent. It is highly addictive. Meth can come in different forms. It can be a powder or a rock-like chunk. The color can vary widely; white, yellow, brown, gray, orange, and pink have been observed.

Meth can be smoked, injected, snorted, or taken orally.

The use of methamphetamine is associated with episodes of violent behavior, paranoia, anxiety, confusion, and insomnia. Meth can produce psycotic symptoms that last for months or years.

The ingredients used in Methamphetamine production are extremly volatile and explosive. Meth labs frequently explode, harming not only the occupants, but other inocent bystanders.

Methamphetamine laboratory sites typically contain toxic chemicals and waste. Children who inhabit homes where laboratories are present often inhale dangerous chemical fumes or gases or ingest toxic chemicals or illicit drugs. Exposure to these substances can cause serious short- and long-term health problems including damage to the brain, liver, kidneys, lungs, eyes, and skin. Children whose parents or guardians produce or abuse methamphetamine also are likely to develop emotional and behavioral problems stemming from abuse or neglect. In addition, inhaling or ingesting toxic substances such as those present at methamphetamine laboratories may cause cancer or death.
