METHAMPHETAMINES

WHAT WE KNOW

Methamphetamines have short- and long-term effects on your brain.

Methamphetamines can affect your body.

Methamphetamines are as dangerous as crack, cocaine, and heroin. Some users get hooked the first time they snort, smoke, or inject meth. Because methamphetamines can be made from lethal ingredients (battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel, and antifreeze), there is a greater chance of heart attack, stroke, or serious brain damage with using this drug than with using other drugs.
