Methamphetamines or Crystal Meth (1990’s) - Mortal Journey
Methamphetamines, or crystal meth, creates paranoia and hallucinations and can lead to toxic psychosis. It is a psychoactive stimulant that can increase alertness, concentration, energy. It can induce euphoria and enhance self esteem. Given its activation of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, meth has a high potential for abuse and addiction - some addicts would choose death over abstinence from the drug. During the early 1990's the use of crystal meth by high school students doubled.
