Crystal meth, also known as methamphetamine or “meth,” is a highly potent stimulant drug that belongs to the amphetamine class of substances. It usually appears as clear, bluish-white crystals or as a shiny, transparent rock-like substance. Methamphetamine can also be found in powder or pill form, although the term “crystal meth” specifically refers to the crystalline version. Crystal meth is typically manufactured in clandestine laboratories using a combination of readily available chemicals and ingredients, including pseudoephedrine (found in certain cold and allergy medications), along with toxic substances such as battery acid, drain cleaner, or other hazardous materials. The production process involves dangerous and volatile chemicals, making it highly hazardous and prone to explosions. When consumed, crystal meth increases the levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in the brain, leading to intense feelings of euphoria, heightened energy, increased focus, and a sense of confidence.
