Methamphetamine became popular in Oregon during the 1980s. Over a five year period from 2003 until 2007, there has been over a 95 percent decrease of Meth abuse in the state; due to new laws concerning pseudoephedrine (in some states, an over the counter cold remedy). Pseudoephedrine may now only be purchased with a prescription, making it harder for chemists to acquire the ingredients they need to produce Crystal Meth for profit. Officials are proposing a state law be passed that requires all medical physicians to turn in methamphetamine abusers to the local public health Authorities. In recent cases (July 2007) various flavors of Crystal Meth, such as strawberry have shown up in numerous drug busts.
Crystal Meth may give users the feeling of confidence and high self esteem, but really the drug is doing quite the opposite for them, giving them a sickly, unattractive appearance. Crystal Meth is known to significantly age users and this is largely because the drug restricts blood flow throughout the body. Every state has different laws and regulation in place to combat Crystal Meth. Crystal Meth in Oregon has dropped since the state mandated laws to regulate the purchase of over-the-counter drugs, used in meth labs to created Crystal Meth. Still the largest meth bust in Oregon was in 2006 and weighed over 100 pounds. Many Oregon Treatment and Rehab Centers recommend intervention to family members hoping to help their loved ones. Interventions however should not be hostile and threatening language should not be used. Keep these talks to as few people as possible, or there's a potential to push the substance user further away.
