METHMEGAMONSTER

The above chart displays the top drug offense in each of the United States. 

Methamphetamine is an illegal drug that has a long and treacherous history. Dangerous, potent and highly addictive, meth creates a devastating dependence that poisons the body systematically causing memory loss, aggression, psychotic behavior, potential heart and brain damage. 

Meth, crank, chalk or speed are all names for the synthetic chemical drug that often hooks users on their first hit. Consequently, it is one of the hardest drug addictions to treat and many die in its grip, according to an article from www.drugabuse.gov. 

It can be snorted, smoked or injected and some even take it orally, but all develop a strong desire to continue to use it for its false sense of well-being. 

Methamphetamine is usually a white, bitter tasting powder. It is a stimulant and is chemically similar to amphetamines. 

Researchers point out that meth addiction has always been a big problem in America, according to an article in Business Insider. Many thought after congress passed a law in 2005 to restrict over the counter medications that were used to make the drug, distribution would decrease. Meth continues to be a “Mega Monster,” even in small rural areas like Millard County. 

Nearly all meth consumed in America today is smuggled in from Mexico where it is mass produced in “Mega Labs” and has increased potency and affordability, according to Millard County Sheriffs Office Chief Deputy Richard Jacobson. 

“Meth has been, and certainly is a bona fide epidemic that is taking on a life of its own,” Jacobson said. 

Meth is not only a drug problem affecting addicts and their family members, but a burden on all of society that burdens American taxation, insurance and health care, he said. 

Nearly half of all inmates in US federal prisons are serving sentences for drug offenses. In more than half of the 50 states, it’s meth that put them behind bars. Millard County Sheriffs Office meth related arrests in 2015-16 were up 275 percent, according to Jacobson. 

“Our tax dollars are supporting drug addiction,” he said. 

There are no government-approved medications to treat methamphetamine addiction. The most effective treatments for addiction are behavioral therapies. 

Meth is often laced with Fentanyl, heroin’s synthetic cousin, Jacobson said. Users inadvertently take a deadly overdose. 

Fentanyl is so deadly, it is changing how first responder’s do their jobs. Because Fentanyl can be absorbed through the skin easily, this dangerous opioid is forcing police and lab workers to invent new ways to protect themselves. 

Millard County Emergency responders and many deputies now carry Narcan in their vehicles, but often with a fentanyl overdose, “Narcan may not be able to totally revive the person.” 

What can the public do? According to Jacobson, the c ommu n i t y should report each and every drug related incident — and be a voice to lawmakers demanding “stronger consequences for those who intend to sell and distribute drugs.”
