Meth Addiction Is A Worldwide Phenomenon

Meth addiction is causing destruction to individuals and their families across the globe. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that the worldwide production of amphetamine stimulants, including crystal meth, is an astonishing 500 metric tons a year. Furthermore, there are about 24.7 million addicts internationally. This means that crystal meth is now the most popular hard drug on the planet. 

Methamphetamines have taken over beautiful places like Australia, New Zealand, The United States, and Russia. The drug has devastated entire communities; leaving behind many hopeless addicts and their families. Meth addiction causes increased crime and higher numbers of incarceration because of drug possession. It also results in a loss of productivity, homelessness, mental health issues, and the spread of deadly diseases like HIV.

Law Enforcement Agencies Continue To Fight The Spread of Meth Addiction

Some countries have very strict laws when it comes to the possession and distribution of methamphetamines. Dubai, for example, threatens its citizens with a minimum two-year sentence for anyone who is caught with even the smallest amount of meth.

Other locales are more sympathetic to the problem of addiction. Australia, for instance, is rather lenient when it comes to punishing meth addicts. They prefer to offer addiction treatment to those with a substance abuse problem so they can get the help they need, although the drug is still illegal.

The United States stands somewhere in the middle. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. The U.S. offers stiff penalties for those who are caught buying, selling, or possessing methamphetamines. However; the U.S. is continually moving toward options that will offer addiction treatment for those who are struggling with an addiction to meth.

Nevertheless, it is important to recognize that methamphetamines are illegal worldwide. Because of the devastating effects of crystal meth, governments across the globe have done what they can to rid their communities of the drug. They have done this by arresting addicts and putting them in jail to punish them for being addicted.
