Methamphetamine is an extremely potent and highly addictive central nervous system stimulant. The use of this drug was once considered to only be found in rural, lower-income communities, due to the simplicity of production. In recent years, the use of methamphetamine has become widespread across the United States and the globe. A common misconception is that the use of methamphetamine immediately results in an altogether deterioration of one’s physical appearance and life-circumstance. This is not the case, as the use of the drug initially produces desirable effects like euphoria and motivation. It is important to note the signs and symptoms of meth use, so the cycle of abuse can be interrupted as soon as possible.
