The meth epidemic( Visual )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speed. Meth. Glass. On the street, methamphetamine has many names. What started as a fad among West Coast motorcycle gangs in the 1970s has spread across the United States and despite lawmakers' calls for action, the drug is now more potent, and more destructive, than at any time in the past decade. The Meth Epidemic investigates the meth rampage in America: the appalling impact on individuals, families and communities, and the difficulty of controlling an essential ingredient in meth - ephedrine and pseudoephedrine - sold legally in over-the-counter cold remedies. In the US Congress, a bipartisan coalition has called for international controls on ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, either of which is essential for making meth. Many states have forced cold medicines that contain these ingredients off retail shelves and behind the pharmacy counter, a move that may become a national requirement. Methamphetamine abuse started in California and Oregon, but spread rapidly into the Midwest. Now the drug has reached the East Coast. The discovery of meth labs in states from Maine to Florida foreshadows a new crisis on the East Coast. Statistics show that meth can trigger a surge in other crimes: In Oregon, a staggering 85 percent of property crime, as well as a majority of muggings, car thefts and identity thefts, has been linked to the drug
