Methamphetamine

How is it used

Speed usually comes in the form of a white or yellow powder but can also be bought in pills. In powder form it is sniffed (snorted) through the nose, injected or in pill form it is swallowed. It is often mixed or cut with other things that look the same to make the drug go further. Some mixed in substances can have harmful or unpleasant effects. It is difficult to know or tell what the drug actually contains.
