I talked to an 18-year-old who said she wanted to get her swagger and flow right. She has friends using cocaine, meth and Molly’s for weight loss…and her question was which one do I think is the best! (She was serious…Is this a common perception?)

Do you know someone who does this or feels this way?

Although some people, including celebrities, have used cocaine and speed or meth to lose weight, it comes with a lot of nasty side effects and legal consequences.

Why are these drugs used?
Because they can cause extremely rapid weight loss. However, the effects are short term. The body builds up a tolerance to the drug so weight loss tapers off and stops around six weeks after taking the drug. Also, weight that is lost is regained once a person stops taking them. For these reasons, combined with how addictive the drugs make them dangerous. Would you risk your life to be slim quick?

Side Effects:

Diarrhea and nausea
Excessive sweating
Loss of appetite, insomnia, tremors, jaw-clenching
Agitation, irritability, talkativeness, panic, compulsive fascination with repetitive tasks, violence, confusion

“Drug Mouth” where teeth rapidly decay and fall out
Increased blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, blood sugar levels, bronchodilation
Constriction of the walls of the arteries
In pregnant and nursing women, methamphetamine crosses the placenta and is secreted in breast milk

Drug-related psychosis (may last for months or years after drug use is discontinued)
Brain damage
Paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, tension headache
Muscle breakdown which can lead to kidney damage or failure
Death due to stroke, cardiac arrest or elevated body temperature (hyperthermia)

Street drugs are not pure or safe and there may be additional side effects from impurities.
