Default The problem of Crystal Meth

Crystal Meth, Ice, Batu, methamphetamines...it has become an epidemic that has saturated our lives. What shocks me is that meth is not a new drug it has been around for decades, yet somehow only within the last few years has decimated America like no other drug before.

So what exactly is the problem? How did meth proliferate to such an extent that it became a problem only recently. It was largely ignored as just another drug, but now has become the #1 feared drug today.

ayup. all that happened when sales of otc meds containing ephedra and other ingredients used in the manufacturing of crystal meth were controlled in the u.s. was that suppliers changed from domestic to mexican.

meth has been a big problem for over 10-15 years now. it was already epidemic 15 years ago, when the age of onset was dipping down into the intermediate schools.

part of the problem is that it is extremely addictive. it is one of the most addictive substances there is - there have been records of people becoming addicted after a single use.

once the dealers turn people on/hook people up, all they have to do is sit back and wait for the addicts to find them.

if the dealers use minors to run/deal for them, the penalty for the minors is so small that it's worth the money for them to deal. they know that their records will be expunged upon turning 18, so it's not like they're ruining their futures unless they start using the product. and the distributors/dealers remain isolated from the actual transactions.

there are many reasons why crystal meth has become such a big problem - these are but a few.

It seems our problem is the inability to create a real and enforceable ban on meth.

I like Singapore's approach, the death penalty for anyone involved in the drug business. Too bad that would never happen here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital...e_of_Drugs_Act

wow just 1p of bud will = death.

----------------
but I guess they also understood they ban one vice, they gotta legalize another so brothels are legal in Singapore.

Ice is a big prob everywhere.

It is cheap, and easy to make.

There were recipe's on how to make them with otc drugs. That is bad.

Now that the war on weed is high on the Big Island, ice is becoming popular.

Try once and you'll see what the problem is. I think a lot of you think you are strong willed/minded individuals, well... You're not! If you think you are then try the drug and test it. Most of you will never touch it, thankfully, but also you'll never trully understand what it does and how you'd feel. Imagine having all the energy both mentally and physically, the confidence mentally, and the will - as if you could "will" anything you choose to will. Kinda like if lets say you were gonna do something but you didn't feel like doing it, with Meth you could feel like doing anything you choose to do, as long as you want to do it. You'd also have the energy both physically and Mentally to do it.

I think that is one of the reasons why people do it. I also believe that one of it's effects is that it makes you -willing or unwillingly- want to do it more. I honestly believe that for the people who do it, if they had an unlimited amount they'd probably OD within an hour.

We need to redirect our resources away from bud and use it towards serious drugs that have a negative impact on society. Funny how BI can make a big push against marijuana while they have something else actually destroying lives right behind them.

I don't have the desire nor the guts to even try crystal meth.

Same here! In fact, I think I'm more afraid of the "what would happen to me" part of it than anything else. My biggest reason for not trying any drugs--I'm always thinking about what would happen if I did do it and it was a bad trip?

Exactly! Also, it is not just an American problem. Instead it is a worldwide problem as it is decimating Asia particularly Japan, Phillipines, Korea, Thailand and Taiwan. They have had a problem with it for the past 20 years and it is growing worse.

One of my teacher friends used to be on it after she had her baby and she did some wack stuff! She'd hoist 12x8x8 feet beams into her porch and make a swing for her son. She's 5' and maybe 100 lbs and did everything by herself.

If you want to try the most powerful drug around... A legal drug... try salvia available at "smokeys".

After you take a hit, it is so powerful that you instantly forget that your on drugs. Its so powerful that you cant see anything because your hallucinating on top of your regular vision. Its a visual trip, not a feel good trip. Luckily it lasts only about 5 minutes. Dont try it without someone watching you, becuase you will start walking around, even though you are on a different planet. You meet people on the "other side" too. You hear voices, and see things you have never seen before! I swear there were people on the other side telling me to "dont be scared", "relax, it will all be over in a minute"

Intensly scary stuff, I only did it twice. search "salvia" on you tube for some example trips.

Been sober long enough to not call it "been sober". (4 years)

Its more of a problem because its more readily available these days.
