Methamphetamines have long been favored products of drug cartels due to the availability of required precursor chemicals for manufacture as well as their potency and highly addictive nature. Regular methamphetamine abuse is highly damaging to the body and mind, and the visible effects this powerful chemical have on the human body are shocking and disgusting. This highly addictive and deadly drug has achieved great popularity among addicts in America, destroying families and cutting lives tragically short along the way.
Methamphetamine, or meth as its commonly known, is a synthetic stimulant which delivers an intense and euphoric high to its users. Those who have used meth describe a feeling of invincibility and limitless potential, but these feelings come at a high price. As the effects of the drug begin to fade, a person’s brain cries out for more, compelling them to do whatever it takes to get their next hit. This compulsion is further exacerbated by the psychosis which occurs after regular use, as meth leads to sleep deprivation and a warped perception of reality. These effects come together and turn the substance abuser into an energized, paranoid, often violent individual who will mow down any barrier between themselves and their next high.
The physical effects of long term meth use are as apparent as the psychosis it brings about in those under its spell. Methamphetamine suppresses a person’s appetite and allows them to stay awake and active for days at a time. This quickly leads to a person appearing gaunt, emaciated, and generally unwell. Meth is also incredibly hard on a person's mouth and teeth, leading to a condition known as “meth mouth” where the teeth and gums have rapidly and visibly deteriorated. Regular meth users, like most other drug addicts, often neglect their personal hygiene. The stimulant effects of methamphetamine exacerbates their unhygienic appearance, and they are often soaked in sweat with a pungent, offensive odor. All told, methamphetamine is just as devastating to a person physically as it is psychologically.
Methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant with favored status among prominent drug cartels. It is relatively cheap to manufacture, has a high potential for addiction, and there is strong demand throughout the United States for this deadly drug. Prolonged meth use will cause significant damage to your body and mind, so it is imperative you seek treatment for this life threatening addiction as soon as possible. Sadly, the psychosis induced by meth often prevents the user from thinking clearly enough to even understand they have a problem, so often intervention by loved ones is necessary.
