Tweak Chalk Pervitin Batu Tick Tick Yellow Powder Crank WHAT it is made of and HOW: Crystal meth is illegally made in labs by altering the chemical composition of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine in over-the-counter drugs that were usually for colds or allergies originally. The process itself releases dangerous gases and fumes that can easily blow up the lab and harm the "chemist." That's nasty... and disturbing. How Long Does the High Last? A Crystal Meth high can last up to 40 minutes. But, the effects can be felt up to 18-24 hours afterward. What are Some short and long-term Effects? Short-term effects include psychological difficulties (insomnia, confusion, hallucinations, anxiety, paranoia, and hunger loss). Physical problems that can occur are weight loss, irritability, aggressiveness, hyperactivity, nausea, and delusions of power. Some long-term effects can result in psychological difficulties such as brain damage, memory loss, inability to grasp abstract thought, memory gaps and extreme mood swings. Physical effects include increased heart rate and blood pressure, damaged blood vessels in the brain that can cause strokes or an irregular heartbeat, cardiovascular collapse, liver damage, kidney damage, and lung damage. When used more and more frequently, crystal meth can result in these side-effects quicker and ultimately, death. Criminal Penalties?! Up to five years in prison
A maximum fine of $50,000 for the first offense
