Methamphetamine Drug Crimes

By Law Offices of Matthew T. McNally  May. 9, 2012 4:44p

The distribution and abuse of methamphetamine has become an increasing problem in the U.S. This drug is a brain stimulant that is highly addictive. It is a crystal-like powder that can be snorted, smoked, injected, or taken orally. Smoking or injecting it creates a highly euphoric state which can be followed by agitation, anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, and nervousness. Its effects can result in convulsions, heart attacks, paranoia, and other physical problems. It is often used as a binge drug, which can cause an increasing dependence and higher doses needed to achieve the desired effect. Long-term use of the drug can result in delusions, hallucinations, and psychotic behavior. Most of the methamphetamine that is distributed and sold in the U.S. comes from Mexican labs and is smuggled over the Southwest border. Some small domestic labs also contribute to the availability of the drug.

According to the 2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 1.2 Americans had used methamphetamine in the year prior to being surveyed. It is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Those who are arrested for possession, distribution, sale, manufacturing, or trafficking in methamphetamine face severe legal consequences if convicted.
