It is one thing to decide to take unknown or illicit drugs, but taking it properly and mastering its effects is essential.  However, if you do decide to use the Tina Drug also known as Crystal Meth, we are here to inform you on its composition, effects and safe intake of it.

What is Tina Drug?

  • Tina drug (Methamphetamine) is part of the amphetamine family of stimulant drugs. The crystal form of metham-phetamine, sometimes called Crystal Meth, is extremely powerful and addictive.
  • It can come in several different forms – including tablets, powder, or crystals.
  • Depending on its form, the Tina drug can be swallowed, snorted or injected (slammed); and unlike amphetamine, it can also be smoked.
  • Other names include Tina, T, Ice.

Effects of Tina Drug

  • Crystal Meth gives an intense, powerful ‘high’ followed by a very severe ‘comedown’.  Effects include feeling very up, exhilarated, alert and awake.  Crystal Meth can also make people feel agitated, paranoid, confused and aggressive.
  • Crystal Meth can produce a very intense, long lasting high, leading to a period of between 4 and 12 hours when you’re not really in control.

What are the risks?

  • Crystal Meth is highly addictive.
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure, raising the risk of heart attack – the higher the dose, the greater these effects.
  • Inhibitions are lowered and sex drive may be increased – this can lead to taking part in risky activities that you would not normally do, such as having unsafe sex.
  • Severe psychoses caused by methamphetamine have been reported. Psychosis is a serious mental state where you lose touch with reality and may come to believe things that are not true.
  • Crystal meth overdose can lead to stroke as well as lung, kidney and gastrointestinal damage. In some cases, coma and death can occur.
  • There is evidence that long-term use can damage the brain.

Legal status

  • Methamphetamine is a Class A drug – so it’s illegal to have for yourself, give away or sell.
  • Possession is illegal and can get you up to seven years in jail and/or an unlimited fine.
  • Supplying someone else, even your friends, can get you up to life imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine.
