What is methamphetamine?
Methamphetamine (meth, ice, crystal, glass, speed, chalk, or tina) is a highly addictive, man-made drug that stimulates the pleasure section of the brain. Meth has been used as a stimulant for several decades. In more recent years, use has surged as has purity increased resulting in intense highs.
Because meth can be made from common household items, small laboratories can be set up in a variety of locations to make, or “cook,” the drug. In Utah, the number of labs has decreased dramatically.
