In 2006 it was estimated by Nevada officials that over 40,000 people were using Methamphetamine at the time across the state. The drug is scarcely created in the state; it is mainly imported from Mexican and californian "super labs". "Super labs" create over 10 pounds of Crystal Meth during a 24 hour time period; however officials say that it is becoming more diluted for sale all the time. Purity levels of the drug have gone from 99 percent pure Methamphetamine to the 50 percent range relatively quickly. A senator in the state had recently helped to provide 1.8 million dollars in grant money to hire new deputies and school police, although President Bush took the program away. From 1996 to year 2005 75 percent more people were seeking treatment for Methamphetamine in state funded programs.
There are many different reasons why people begin to use Crystal Meth in Nevada. Some people use it to become thinner, particularly women who believe that meth is a weight loss supplement. Some people with lower self esteem like the confident boost that Crystal Meth gives them when they are high. Crystal Meth in the state of Nevada is especially high in the city of Las Vegas due to the heavy amount of tourism and the proximity to Arizona, California and Mexico, three of the largest supplying states of meth through illegal activity. There are a large amount of Crystal Meth Treatment and Rehab Centers in Nevada as well.
