Crystal Meth is a methamphetamine in the form of a rock-like crystal that is usually a semitransparent white or blue color. This substance is always illegal and has no other purpose than for abuse. People that use crystal meth are looking for the immediate and long-lasting high for which the drug has gained notoriety. When the substance is smoked, the vapor moves quickly from the lungs to the bloodstream–where it then travels rapidly to the brain. Since the drug acts as a stimulant throughout the brain and body, there is an almost instant euphoria, followed by an increase in energy and alertness–effects that can last for up to 12 hours.
