Crystal Meth is a powerful and highly addictive synthetic stimulant which is man-made. Crystal methamphetamine resembles small fragments of glass or shiny blue-white “rocks” of various sizes. Like powdered methamphetamine (another form of d-methamphetamine), crystal methamphetamine is abused because of the long-lasting euphoric effects it produces. Crystal methamphetamine, however, typically has a higher purity level and may produce even longer-lasting and more intense physiological effects than the powdered form of the drug.

Typically Crystal Meth is smoked using glass pipes similar to those used to smoke crack cocaine. Crystal methamphetamine also may be injected. A user who smokes or injects the drug immediately experiences an intense sensation followed by a high that may last 12 hours or more.

Crystal methamphetamine is abused by people of all ages and is gaining in popularity. According to a University of Michigan Survey, nearly 5 percent of high school seniors in the United States used crystal methamphetamine at least once in their lifetime and 3 percent used the drug in the past year.

Crystal Meth is the drug most used by predators to reduce the moral integrity of young women and under-aged teenage girls. This leads to a very degraded person who cannot confront the life they are leading and they find it very difficult to ask for help, being afraid their hidden life will be discovered.
