Methamphetamine, or crystal meth, is a drug that typically comes in crystalline form. It is usually smoked in pipes, but it can also be injected, snorted, or swallowed. It is intended to cause feelings of euphoria, but it can also cause many other unwanted effects, including rapid tooth decay, diarrhea and nausea, excessive sweating, and muscle breakdown.
Because crystal meth can be created using over-the-counter drugs and other common household items, it is becoming widely available in our state, and law enforcement and prosecutors are working hard to crack down on instances of possession and distribution of the drug.
The genuine care and concern Mr. Ali showed us during a difficult time were very much appreciated. It has been a long journey, however, Mr. Ali and the team at Ali & Blankner have been there with us each step along the way.T.M.
