    Potential Solution to the Illegal Production and Abuse of Meth

    Potential Solution to the Illegal Production and Abuse of Meth

    The illegal manufacturing of meth, the abuse of methamphetamines and meth addiction continues to be a concern no matter where you live. Illegal meth labs continue to be problematic, create fires, explosions, cause severe burns, injuries and affect people living in and near a clandestine meth lab site. Meth can even be cooked and produced in one pot methods while driving in a vehicle today. Even though the laws have become stricter and ingredients like pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are harder to come by, it doesn't stop the drug from being illegally manufactured and trafficked.

    Meth is abused by many teens, young and older adults today and part of the reason is because it's easy to get and inexpensive. There are various reasons people abuse crystal meth, some people use the stimulant to lose weight, many use the drug to get a long lasting high and others abuse the drug because they're addicted and unable to stop.

    The only way to stop meth from being illegally produced is by keeping important ingredients like pseudoephedrine and ephedrine from getting into the hands of meth cooks and drug dealers. Unfortunately even though allergy and cold medications containing ingredients like pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are being monitored making them harder to get, drug traffickers are finding ways to get around it. We will continue to have illegal meth labs, fires, explosions, serious burns and injuries, methamphetamine abuse and meth addiction as long as drug dealers can get their hands on the crucial main ingredients like pseudoephedrine and ephedrine.

    Right now ingredients like pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are needed in allergy medications and unfortunately millions of people suffer from allergies and need their medications. There may be an answer to this problem in the future though, there's an allergy medication called Releva that is effective but is of no use to drug dealers when it comes to producing meth according to Fox2now.com.
