The National Institute of Health states that methamphetamine increases the amount of dopamine in the brain, a chemical that is involved in body movement, motivation, pleasure, and reward. The drug causes an intense high which fades quickly. Nearly 1.2 million people reported using the drug in the past year, while 440,000 people reported using it in the past month. This crucial edition delves into the history of methamphetamine as a recreational drug and as a big business for criminal enterprises. It also discusses the toll that methamphetamine addiction takes on its users, as well as families and communities in general. The book concludes by discussing processes and methods used to treat meth addiction and how law enforcement agencies are trying to combat the meth industry.
