Addictive Properties of Crystal Meth
Crystal meth is a highly addictive psychological drug that can give users
a momentary burst of energy, high confidence, and send them into a state
of euphoria. That high is short-lived, however, and many experience intense
crashes once the effects wear away.
Because the drug can be so habit-forming, many users will try to manufacture
the drug in homemade "meth labs" to sell or maintain the drug
habit. As many of the ingredients used to make crystal meth are found
in chemicals made from everyday household products, including the main
component, cold medicine pills, you could face charges just for simply
possessing these common items.
Penalties for Crystal Meth Charges
New York's drug crime laws have been known to be some of the toughest
in the country. Individuals who have been convicted of a crystal meth
drug crime could face serious penalties. Even the slightest amount of
meth can be counted as possession.
The following are examples of meth crimes you could face:
- Possession or possession with the intent to sell
- Possession of paraphernalia (items used to make or use drugs)
Furthermore, the penalties for these crimes can include jail sentences,
fines, and additional consequences. For example, being caught with less
than 5 grams of crystal meth could mean jail time for up to 20 years and
a $1,000,000 fine. Other consequences might include mandatory enrollment
in a drug rehabilitation program or fulfilling community service hours.
Previous drug crime convictions could make your sentences even harsher.
Having an experienced New York City drug crimes attorney working on your
side can help you combat charges involving crystal meth.
