Methamphetamine is a small and growing concern in the state of Delaware. Health officials report that a total of 65 total treatment admissions statewide from year 1995 to year 2000 were in relation to Methamphetamine. No deaths have been reported. The substance is usually produced in the state of Pennsylvania, and transported to Delaware via private vehicle. Criminal organizations and motorcycle gangs across the state are in control of both wholesale and retail distribution of the substance, as reported by law enforcement officials.
One of the heavier areas affected by Crystal Meth use in Delaware is Sussex County. Although throughout other states this drug is viewed as a "club drug" that is not the case in Delaware and is often used by people living by themselves or in isolation. Crystal Meth can cause a person to look malnourished due to its natural appetite suppressing ingredients. It also can lead to broken or chipped teeth, and more serious side effects such as increased blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, and extreme anxiety, all of which can be dangerous for someone who is using in isolation. Crystal Meth users also can have extreme paranoia about others discovering that they are using illegal substance.
