2. Crystal meth
Methamphetamine, crystal meth, crank, chalk, and meth are all nicknames of the same addictive, illegal drug. It first acts as a stimulant but soon after begins to destroy the body. Many people report becoming addicted to this drug the moment they tried it. This is a property of meth that makes addiction very hard to treat thereby leaving users to suffer nasty effects like memory loss, aggression, psychosis, as well as brain damage. The final result of crystal meth addiction is often death or many years behind bars. In some parts, you will get seven years of jail time if caught in possession of this lethal drug.
