1. Scathed (Crystal Meth Drug Abuse) - Level 1

1. Scathed (Crystal Meth Drug Abuse) - Level 1

Crystal Methamphetamine is a highly addictive stimulant, used by people of all ages because of the long-lasting euphoric effects it produces. Unfortunately, it is increasingly gaining popularity as a club drug. Crystal Meth can cause many serious physical problems, including high blood pressure, which can lead to stroke, inflammation of the heart lining, hyperthermia and convulsions; also it can produce psychotic symptoms that may last for months or years, even after a person stops taking the drug. This eye-opening documentary looks at the problem of Crystal Meth abuse through the eyes of current and recovering users and their families, health-care workers and police. The dramatic message is clear: using Crystal Meth is not a game; it leaves in its wake wrecked lives, broken dreams and even death, not to mention the millions of dollars of costs in policing and health expenditures. It is the producers' hope that viewers will gain a better understanding of the dangers associated with the seductive lure of this and other illicit drugs. 07/10DE JSCA 30 min.
