  • The faces of Methamphetamine, before & after



    =













    Nose damage from snorting Ice;


    Methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant. It is a controlled substance that is manufactured in clandestine laboratories throughout the United States. It is easy to make using common household chemicals. No formal chemistry training is needed. Methamphetamine can be ingested by swallowing, inhaling, injecting or smoking. Methamphetamine is highly addictive. The side effects, which arise from the use and abuse of methamphetamine, include irritability, nervousness, insomnia, nausea, depression, and brain damage. Street names, or slang terms, for methamphetamine are: speed, ice, chalk, meth, crystal, fire or glass.

    The initial side effects of methamphetamine are pleasurable. However, the drug itself can cause mental confusion, severe anxiety, and paranoia. Methamphetamine users are very aggressive and paranoid which often results in violent behavior. There is a direct relationship between methamphetamine abuse and increased incidents of domestic violence and child abuse.

    Impressive. I've seen similar studies showing the physical decline from alcohol abuse. Not as rapid on the physical appearance, but the results are very similar over time.

              Erm...... Has there been a mistake with the pics? The caption on the one above states its the result of Leishmaniasis which is caused by a parasite transmitted by infected sandflys & has nothing to do with Methamphetamine.

                  Exactly. The last picture has nothing to do with methamphetamines. The bite of the female sandfly releases the protozoan leishmania and that then completes its life cycle in the host, i.e. the bitten person.

                        Nice observations Richard , my apoligies for that mistake. My understanding is meth snorting can have a similar effect on the nose.

                        We haven't looked at the teeth yet have we?... Well then, the next lesson on the physical effects of meth use are the teeth... or lack of

                              No, those are not my teeth if that's what your meaning . I bet those teeth smell so bad.
