All anti-depressant drugs are dangerous to life. The question is why persons drink, intake (tablets), smoke or sniff such drugs. In most of the cases, wrong pursuation by friends who are themselves addicted to such drugs the non-addicted person take in as an experience. He feels charged vibrant and active, not knowing that this artificial metabolic boost up is temporary and the intaker is not only artificially push up in his physiological systems but that he is falling in the trap of addiction. The “good feeling” after taking these drugs encourages the person to take it more often until he is completely addicted to such drugs and non availibility would make their bodies react hazardously, such as cramps, headache, emptiness, irritations, feeling of ants and bugs crawling down their skin. The ultimate result of addiction which increases every passing day, the man’s physiological and metabolic system decrease drastically, the biological immunization system starts faltering and he meets his untimely death. It is noteworthy that all such drugs increases the heart beats, blood pressure artificially. This artificial process of increasing heart beats and rapid blood circulation affects the health of both the heart and the circulartory system . Most of the drugs are opium based. In that the basic ingredient of such drugs is opium. Opium is a botanical plant. Opium latex contains approximately 12 percent of the analgesic alkaloid morphine, which is processed chemically to produce heroin and other synthetic opioids for medicinal use and for the illegal drug trade (Wikipedia). There is a long list of opiate drugs, to name some prominent drugs being: Buprenex, Heroin, Morphine. Cocaine, Vicodin et al. Such drugs are also prepared synthetically (non opiate) such as Methamphetamine (commonly called Meth in short). This drug is manifold more dangerous to human health. No only this, the opiate drugs destroys the user only whereas Meth is a social demon.
Methamphetamine is a synthetic (man-made) chemical, unlike cocaine, for instance, which comes from a plant.
Meth is commonly manufactured in illegal, hidden laboratories, mixing various forms of amphetamine (another stimulant drug) or derivatives with other chemicals to boost its potency. Common pills for cold remedies are often used as the basis for the production of the drug. The meth “cook” extracts ingredients from those pills and to increase its strength combines the substance with chemicals such as battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel and antifreeze.
These dangerous chemicals are potentially explosive and because the meth cooks are drug users themselves and disoriented, they are often severely burned and disfigured or killed when their preparations explode. Such accidents endanger others in nearby homes or buildings.
The illegal laboratories create a lot of toxic waste as well—the production of one pound of methamphetamine produces five pounds of waste. People exposed to this waste material can become poisoned and sick.
“Welfare money was not enough to pay for our meth habit and support our son so we turned our rented home into a meth lab. We stored the toxic chemicals in our refrigerator not knowing that the toxins would permeate [go into] the other food in the icebox.
“When I gave my three-year-old son some cheese to eat, I did not know that I was giving him poisoned food. I was too stoned on meth to notice, until twelve hours later, that my son was deathly ill. But then I was so stoned it took me two hours to figure out how to get him to the hospital five miles away. By the time I got to the emergency room my boy was pronounced dead of a lethal dose of ammonia hydroxide—one of the chemicals used to make meth.” —Melanie
