Methamphetamine

Methamphetamine, more commonly referred to as ‘P’, Chrystal Meth or Meth, is a Class A controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1978  meaning it attracts the highest penalties for manufacture, trafficking, sale and use.

Production

Methamphetamine is manufactured in New Zealand in clandestine (secret) drug laboratories, known as ‘clan labs’.  ‘Clan labs’ can be found throughout New Zealand in houses, garages, outbuildings, apartments, baches and motor vehicles.

How it harms the innocent

Methamphetamine is a crystal that vaporises when heated, as in smoking.  The vapor clings to surfaces and reforms into crystals.  People who come in contact with these surfaces can ingest the meth through their skin or by touching contaminated surfaces then touching mouth, nose or eyes.
