Methamphetamine Addiction is a Dangerous Threat to America
Because the use of opioids and the resulting fatalities are at record highs in the United States, the focus on other drug problems, such as meth and cocaine has faded. However, just because this issue is not receiving much attention, does not mean it has gone away. Not by a long shot! Meth addiction is still a major problem for communities nationwide.
Amphetamines are a class of stimulants which are prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit disorders in children and adults. Methamphetamine is a form of these stimulants that can be cooked up in homemade laboratories and is created with the active ingredient, pseudoephedrine, commonly found in the over-the-counter cold medication, Sudafed.
As a result of the widespread homemade-manufacturing of methamphetamine, supermarkets and pharmacies have implemented stricter regulations and limits regarding the sale of medications that include pseudoephedrine.
