As far as a dirty manufacturing process goes I just don't see it. You have pre cursors and you clean them as best you can and react them then you clean your final product A/B and you end up with a very clean product in nothing but clean water.
I have more to say but am short on time will get back to this when I can..........
I want to point out next that it is possible to be productive while high on meth (maybe not always likely but possible) when smoking coke being productive does not seem very possible I will elaborate later......
You know, I suppose I stand corrected when it comes to deaths caused. I spoke without thinking that through
But, going off what ShainsUpallnight said, I don't see how meth production isn't a dirty/nasty process. I'm sure in a laboratory it wouldn't seem so nasty, but most of the glass is getting cooked in the shitholes like Shain described. If meth isn't a dirty production process, than what drug
And yeah, it's possible to be productive on meth. I was for the first few months, but after that, it went steeply downhill as far as productivity goes. But yes, it is possible, anything is possible. Of all the tweakers I know, none of them are getting recognized any time soon for their outstanding drive and motivation haha..
And one last little thing... You can most definitely overdose from smoking meth. I dont know why some people keep saying this... I'm sure it would have to be pretty potent stuff, and many big big hauls after being up for days... But meth OD, from smoking, does happen. And a meth OD can mean a heart attack, stroke, and death.
But yes, you are right, coke/crack can kill a person much easier.
So my conclusion is....
Meth is a more powerful stimulant.
is a more deadly drug.
As far as which one is more devastating to ones lifestyle.. Well that's a tough tough call..
I would say... The average crack addict's lifestyle has more struggles and detrements than an
average tweaker... However, the worst tweakers, I'm talking 2 grams a day in the vein, probably
not only have a more hectic addiction
than any crack addict, but more than any other type of addict
period... Meth addiction varies greatly in severity.. At the end of the spectrum is a very ugly, terrible
So in short, crack on average messes a persons life up more than then meth does on average. However, meth has greater potential for how badly it can ruin your life. Meth is a more powerful stimulant, as it keeps you up for days, even though the peak is less intense than crack. Crack lasting only 5 minutes a hit, does get you very high, but I wouldn't consider it more powerful than meth simply because it last a ridiculously short duration. And finally, crack is a more deadly drug, as it is easier and more likely to cause a sudden overdose.
As far as addiction potential goes, my answer remains the same. I think meth is much easier to get addicted to. It's cheap price, and long lasting duration are probably big factors in this.
What drug is worse? They are both worse in different categories as I explained above.
However, despite crack being more likely to cause OD, I would say meth overall is a worse drug
as a whole. It's more physically damaging, more addicting, bad on society, and is very hard to recover from. I'm in no way downplaying cracks severity, in fact it's very hard to place it behind meth.
In fact, I know this is a lame answer, but it's true, you really can't compare drugs
with such broad comparisons. It's like apples and oranges. Heroin
is relatively harmless on your body for long term effects, but is usually regarded as the worse drug to be addicted to.. So you know? Obviously it makes up for its dangerous-ness (word?) in other ways. You can't compare em really, accurately. i tried tho the best I can. Ice, rocks, and down. All their own beast in their own right. If one drug was the best, well there wouldnt be a ton of addicts of all three.. It's all based on preference. Personally, i don't see how one could be addicted to crack, but obviously they see something in crack that I dont. They probably think meth is a waste of money...
Personally, I can't see myself ever wanting anything other than what meth gives me... addiction wise that is... lol i'll still do my many many recreational drugs... MDMA
, white, mush, acid, dxm
... the list goes on, but the longer the list gets, the less I remember.. Haha because a longer list = more drugs = fewer brain cells.
