What is Crystal Meth?Crystal Meth is the crystalised form of methamphetamine. This substance is usually a cloudy white colour and comes in crystal form. These crystals are smashed apart and snorted, smoked, or injected, to give the user a high. Most users smash it and snort it to get a sense of instant euphoria. Crystal meth is dangerous because it is the purest form of methamphetamine that exists. Meth increases the dopamine levels in your brain temporarily. The effect wears off quickly, so the user takes more. They soon develop immunity, so they take even more. Eventually, meth users overdose from using toxic levels. Meth affects your brain chemistry, changes your blood pressure, and affects your heart. Negative signs of meth use include blackened teeth, heart and respiratory diseases, anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations, and severe mood swings. Crystal meth has an impact on your appearance and can cause welts on the body. Users are known to scratch themselves bloody.
