Methamphetamine can be made easily, reports and authorities found methamphetamine labs in car trunks or even at homes such like in the oven, small rooms or at mobile homes wherein even users can make their own to provide their eagerness to taste the effect of methamphetamine. On the past decades the recipe for making the methamphetamine was just restricted or limited to the manufacturers, but now even publications and the internet provide instructions to make the nerve-wrecking drug: methamphetamine.
In the book by Herbert Covey : The methamphetamine crisis says that “if internet is not used as source of making methamphetamine, there are some books that provide recipes and instructions to make one such as the book which is widely known as Uncle Fester’s (2002) Secrets of manufacture: including recipes for Mda, Ecstacy, and other Psychedelic amphetamines (6th edition)”. Some ingredient in making this drug are usually found at home or even the chemicals used farming and ranching such as ammonia and iodine making this drug just very easy to create.
In the rural are the very target of methamphetamine manufacturers because the odors and by products of meth are more easily covered and thus making this manufacturers less to be discovered by the authorities (Covey 36). According to an online source, All Positive options. com , methamphetamines have some any other names such as meth, speed, crystal, glass, ice, chalk, crank and fire, these codenames prevent them from being caught up. Methamphetamines, in form of crystal or powder, have different ways to use it like any other illegal dugs.
It can be injected directly to the skin to get the feeling of what they called as “heaven”, or it can be smoked and or can be taken orally. The effect of meth will depend on the amount that is taken, physical fitness of the user , the metabolism, the purity of methamphetamine and on how many times the user have used it. one method of taking meth is to take orally, some users will create them in the form of a pill by placing it into an empty gelatin which can be bought at health food stores and take it together with a juice, coffe, soda and any other liquids.
Like cocaine, methamphetamines can be taken by snorting. Powdered meth is popular in inhaling this kind of drug and even crystal meth can be used by just simply chopping it until it becomes a fine powder and can be inhaled by using a straw or tube, when meth now is ingested the thin membrane of the nasal passages absorbs the meth that was inhaled thus damages these membranes and even sometimes cause a permanent damage. Another way of ingesting meth is by “anal insertion of amphetamine”.
Like taking it orally with pills, in this way the pill with meth can be inserted at the anus but the action of the meth is very slow. Another way is what they called as meth enema, since meth can be easily dissolved in water; dissolved meth is placed on a syringe without the needle and then injected it to the anus. The onset of this method is very fast because the rectum is full of capillaries thus making the meth travel directly to the bloodstream and since the stomach is passed by nausea is less to be felt.
