Because of the opioid epidemic, most people don’t focus on other drugs as much nowadays. However, that doesn’t mean that these drugs are any less dangerous. This is especially true for drugs like cocaine and methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth. Methamphetamines are stimulants often used to treat conditions like ADHD and extreme obesity.
However, meth has become a street drug that is often “cooked up” with no oversight or regulation. Crystal meth sold on the streets is often made from over-the-counter cold medication. As a result, areas with higher rates of meth abuse often see higher rates of convenience store and pharmacy robberies.
Like any addiction, there are stages to meth addiction that build over time. Often it beings with recreational use and graduates to maintenance and abuse. From there, addiction forms when the user becomes dependent on the drugs. The signs of meth addiction will vary based on each user’s history.
