In Louisiana Methamphetamine abuse is making a serious rise, particularly in the northern rural portions of the state. The majority of Meth available in the state is available via local production, and in mobile laboratories, and usually travels in quantities of about a pound or less at one time so that it can be easily concealed. Although imported vacations of the drug are also available, independent Caucasian dealers, chemists, and local criminal groups are held responsible for retail and wholesale distribution. While crack-cocaine was the primary drug of choice in these areas of the state, Crystal Meth has drawn the attention and interest of previous Crack users because of the long lasting euphoric effects, and low cost. The initial long lasting low cost high acquired by first time users is short lived, as tolerance to the drug is quickly built and one must use much more to reach his or her desired effect in each use.
While there is no real withdrawal symptoms cause by Crystal Meth use, there are still significant visual side effects and long term damage to the body. Users claim that meth can make them feel more confident or attractive mentally, but physically it is quite the opposite. Methamphetamines significantly ages the skin causing wrinkles and uneven skin tone, the appearance of rotten teeth known as "meth mouth", thin hair or a receding hair line and other significant physical changes in the body and face structures. Internally Crystal Meth can have significant impacts such as a decreased immune system, heart conditions, liver damage and seizures. There are non 12 step programs that can help people overcome Crystal Meth.
