Making Crystal Meth - Breaking Bad

By January 30, 2008

Follow me on:

I've been watching the new tv series on AMC called "Breaking Bad" which is about a chemistry teacher who gets diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and decides to make crystal meth to earn some money for his family (not that teaching high school chemistry doesn't make a mint). The writers consulted with the US DEA about how to make crystal meth, so the meth lab is pretty realistic. While I could tell you how to make any number of chemical weapons, I personally did not know how one would go about making crystal meth. The DEA says instructions are easily found on the internet, but you won't be finding detailed instructions here (nor the chemical weapon ones, in case you were wondering). What I will tell you is making crystal meth involves reducing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine and is easy enough just about anyone can do it, which is why my favorite over-the-counter allergy and cold medicines are so hard to find.

Now... just because it's easy to make crystal meth doesn't mean it's smart. First off, it's highly illegal. It's also decently hazardous to your health. In the US, a typical meth lab employs something called the 'Red, White, and Blue Process', which entails hydrogenation of the hydroxyl group on the ephedrine or pseudoephedrine molecule. The red is red phosphorus, white is the ephedrine or pseudoephedrine, and blue is iodine, used to make hydroiodic acid. If you aren't careful, you can expose yourself to highly toxic phosphine gas. White phosphorus with sodium hydroxide produces the gas, usually as a result of overheating red phosphorus, plus white phosphorus can autoignite and blow up the meth lab. In the first episode of "Breaking Bad", the chemistry-prof-turned-meth-chef gets away from some bad guys by purposely cooking up phosphine to use as a poison. In addition to phosphine and phosphorus, various nasty vapors may be found floating around a meth lab, such as chloroform, ether, acetone, ammonia, hydrochloric acid, methylamine, iodine, hydroiodic acid, lithium or sodium, mercury, and hydrogen gas.

Although meth is second only to alcohol and marijuana in terms of drug popularity in many parts of the US, there are some really excellent reasons why I'm more likely to grab a beer than mess with crystal meth. It causes nerve damage that produces degeneration of brain tissue reminiscent of what you get from Alzheimer's, is associated with meth mouth (in which your teeth rot and fall out), and tends to cause long-lasting behavioral changes even in people who only use it once or twice. I would guess most of the more heinous side effects of crystal meth result from contamination of methamphetamine with the reagents or solvents (most crystal meth is of abysmally low purity), since methamphetamines have reputable prescribed uses, too. Even so, I'll stick with coffee as my preferred pick-me-up. The tv show seems pretty good so far. The characters are interesting and I've certainly learned more about crystal meth than I knew before.

Those are simply solutions of different salts dissolved in ethanol. The solution that made the purple flame for example was a potassium salt in ethanol.

I realize that it has it’s dangers and I believe that it is demonized by law in order to take advantage of those stupid enough to play with it. Governments that prey on their citizens, especially their poor and impoverished, should be punished under the same capitol punishment laws that deter corruption in other parts of the world. We need change and we need it desperately. This has gone on long enough and those responsible for jailing the impoverished should be jailed themselves.

Dear Anne Marie:

Though your post is quite informative and useful in a general sense, unfortunately it faults in it being disproportionately bent towards the “cons” of Crystal Meth use. You give specifics as far as the negative side effects but only lightly graze over the “pros” of this substance. For example you fail to mention how in the United States a legal version of Crystal Meth is prescribed by doctors and psychiatrists. This medicine is called Desoxyn, and, like its “cousin” Concerta, it’s currently being used with relatively good results in the treatment of conditions such as ADD and ADHD. Unlike Concerta though (which chemically is not a methamphetamine), Desoxyn produces fewer side effects. Yet, unlike Concerta, doctors and psychiatrists are terrified by the possibility of prescribing it due to how Crystal Meth has been demonized over the years. So, a less effective (and quite debilitating, if you ask me) drug is currently being given to hopeful patients, while a much better one (which, obviously, requires a closer watch by doctors due to its higher risk of addiction than Concerta) is kept hidden from them.

This is not to say that I am advocating the illegal purchase and use of Crystal Meth by the population at large. I’m simply pointing out that you faulted when you avoided (deliberately or not) to present us with some specific examples about Crystal Meth’s “pros”.

As per what’s good or not to an individual, I’ll use the following example in the hope to drive home a more general statement. Spending hours watching inane soap operas on TV is not very healthy for the watcher’s brain (especially in the long run). Also, the frequent ad breaks, end up damaging the watcher’s attention span and focus. Third, such a “habit” (to use a less “demonizing” term) has the side effect of keeping the watcher indoors and away from more useful and beneficial activities (especially, the physically engaging ones like sports, the gym, etc.) Fourth, the ads themselves act as a mental conditioning. It is generally understood that TV ads are created and designed for the deliberate purpose of modifying people’s behaviors, purpose achieved by undermining the watcher’s self-confidence and stimulating his/her sense of inadequacy and dissatisfaction about his/her choices, lifestyle, appearance, possessions, etc. Clearly, a highly and very destructive process. Yet, this type of “habit” is not even warned against, and of course, no one touch the ads!

Am I right?

Thank you!

Mark

I have looked at several sites and i cannot beleive that we are really teaching out young people how to make drugs to kill their selves.
I only hope that parents block these sites and watch their kids very close because once they are gone it is too late to cry.

(19) comeone says:

Welcome to the internet! It open to all and everything. Just like tv. Parents shouldn’t let there kids have free access and should use parental blocks and monitor them. That’s why things like the v-chip for tvs exisit. The reason y one kid grows up to be straight edge and another becomes an addict is because of proper or lack of parenting. Parents need to stop blaming society and take responsibility for their kids.

(20) Loca C says:

Addiction does not discriminate and affects a various multitude of people in differing cultures and atmosphere. A loving nurturing family can produce the most foul addiction as a family that is dysfunctional in nature. However one point is head on, and that is if a parent isn’t taking the time to research and educated their child themselves you can bet your ass, parental controls or not, any child can educate themselves, even without the net.

BEFORE I START I WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO THE OTHER POSTERS ON HERE WANTING TO LEARN HOW TO MANUFACTURE THE ILLEGAL DRUG METHAMPHETAMINE BEWARE THIS CHEMICAL IS IN MY OPINION VERY DANGEROUS TO MAKE AND ALSO DANGEROUS TO DO. IT TOOK ALMOST 3 YEARS OF MY LIFE AWAY FROM ME AND MY FAMILY WITH MY ADDICTION(NOT INCARCERATION, JUST NEGLECT ON MY PART TO VISIT MY FAMILY BECAUSE I WAS NEVER WANTING THEM TO SEE ME HIGH OFF THIS DRUG AND I USED METH AS OFTEN AS I COULD AFFORD IT.ANYTHING I TEACH U I HOPE U ONLY USE IT FOR INFORMATIONAL REASONS, IM NOT SAYING IT WILL RUIN APART OF UR LIFE IM JUST SAYING IT AFFECTED MY LIFE MORE THAN I COULD UNDERSTAND BEFORE I USED THIS DRUG. AS FOR THE COMMENT ABOVE ABOUT THE MAN WHO HAS A GOOD LIFE AND IS 50 AND READY TO START HAVING SOME RISKY FUN, I WOULD ASK U IF U EVER HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO A DRUG THAT TOOK U 3 MONTHS TO STOP FIENING FOR IT RIGHT WHEN U WOKE UP, WHICH IS JUST ONE PART OF THE ADDICTION. IM NOT TRYING TO BE A HYPOCRITE, JUST GIVING U A FAIR WARNING BEFORE DWELLING INTO THIS SUBSTANCE. I PERSONALLY THINK ADULTS SHOULD HAVE THE LAST SAY IN WHAT GOES INTO THERE SYSTEM, BUT IF UR LIFE IS GOOD NOW THEN MAYBE U SHOULD TRY AND KEEP IT THAT WAY. SORRY FOR THE ALL THE CAPS I JUST FEEL THAT I COULD SAY ALL THIS AND ALOT MORE BEFORE I START GIVING OUT KNOWLEDGE OF THIS SORT.
uncle festers secrets to methamphetamine is a good book to read if u have a small to moderate amount of knowledge of inorganic chemistry and can read between the lines, a safer newer alternative is a fertilizer method which replaces anhydrous with firilizer, it can be done with almost all plastic materials, and u dont run the risk of getting caught with pink dye on u or killing off awhole herd of cows because you got nervise and ran or didnt have a good understanding of how to remove anhydros from a pressurized tank. if i could suggest one thing, it would be to search for a fertilizer method using only a the contents of nitrogen and nothing else(i.e. on the front of the bag there should be 3 numbers, ur looking for one with a ingredient list which is displayed like this: A – B – C, with each ABC representing a value of each ingredient)(u should be able to find one with 2 zeros and one number with a greater value than zero i.e. 0-15-0 with 15 representing the nitrogen content.) 15 is only a example, u want to find the highest number u can. since its alot easier to obtain and safer to handle. although its a safer method in my own opinion beaware fertilizer contains AMOUNIUM NITRATE(dangerous shock sensitive explosive) which can be activated with certain chemicals. mixing parts of fertilizer with desiel fuel creates an explosive that can be detonated with a smaller starter explosive(example: oklahoma city bombing was a terrible tradegdy that involved using only these chemicals to take down almost a whole building with one cargo van, although i guess there were other vans as well to complete the sickening rampage but were found and safely deactivated. LAST WARNING: think first – react second – and please be safe in your thirst for knowledge, later.

and one more thing if u do go through with any of this please dont think about doing it in a urban eviroment, what damage u do to yourself is your business, but when ur endangering other peoples lifes by cooking around other people ur taking a extreme risk, which there is no good reason to justify ur actions for what u chose to do around other individials. its too dangerous for anyone to do this, no matter how certified u are(or not at all like myself) accidents can and do happen. unless u want blood on your hands dont cook around anyone but yourself. adults are adults and thats that. laws can help infulence some people to act a certain way, but as of right now the people are always going to be the ones left with the decision to use or not to use, laws can always make people feel one way, but there is no law that can make everyone listen to what big brother has to say. not in a free country anyway in my opinion. once again please besafe and remember knowledge is power, and comes great power comes great responsibuility. i know that sounds corny and maybe overstated but i stand by those words and i think its made me a more responsible person learning how to control what u would like to do and what should be just left as a greater knowledge and apprieciation for ones own self interest. i like knowing that fact that i have learned so much controversial knowledge over the years in anything from drug manufacturing to small amounts of info on explosive ordinance and other amazing weaponry that most people fear to learn because of somebody’s sterotypical view on what one should be interested and what the majority sees’ as taboo. for myself i like the fact that i have knowledge which most people dont and i can be responsible enough to realize the dangers i possess. to understand how something works and only choose to use it if the time really calls for it(i.e. a possible attack from another contry which renders the public to maintain a well orginized militia in times of crisis(please dont think of me as a paranoid person just waiting for things to happen, i just think that one should be prepared to beable to defends oneself and family members if harms way ever comes. most likely this may never happen(beyond the recent n. korean threats that are going on as i type this). another example that may make you think from my perspective would be to imagine u living in a house and someone breaks into your house and not knowing that ur trained in different self-defense techniques such as defensive firearms use, hand to hand combat, knife fighting, and a little knowledge of the laws on self-defense. with these skills the perp. could be brought off guard thinking that maybe the status quoe is with them. i wouldnt suggest trying to put up a fight over your material items, but if someone is daring enough to point a gun at u or a family member of yours then it could be brought to a point of him/them vs. u/ur family for survival, in which ur training could be a option if the oppertunity is there. or another example is that if a person was aware of ur skills then they might be persuaded to think harder about the risk because they see a greater possibuility of things going sour in there position. would you cause b and e or worse to someone else and there family if u were aware that they were trained better than u and is more wiling to fight with u rather than threaten to call the police(u should try and contact the police if there is an optimal time to do so, its there job to take that risk and having blood on ur hands even though the person was risking ur and ur familys lifes, taking a life is taking a life which i cant imagine anyone getting complete satisfaction for what they done and not feeling a little remorse to the perp. or better yet the perps. family which maybe great people but had no choice in what there relatives chose to do. i know if i had a troubled son that caused heart break to a family i would still have to stick by them through the dark times for feeling like the job of a father wasnt completed and needs to be addressed is a manor which hopefully a person of wrong doing will truly understand in time what they did was wrong and not just trying to accept that it was wrong in everyone else’s eyes beyond his own.

sorry for another long boring lecture from me but i want to try and cover the seriousness of making such substances under ones’ own supervision since i cannot be there to hold ur hand when u need to know what to do because u just caught ur wall on fire and ur whole house is next.

once again please remember to use caution if attempting to do this, and to have a complete understanding of what ur doing. research is the key to success and safety even if it takes several years to build up the confidence to pull off such a scheme. a good source of free info on chemicals is a standard MSDS for all of the chemicals ur working with. in the usa all chemicals are required to have a MSDS with info on all of the dangers associated with that said chemical.if it isnt apparent to u all ready about the following safety equipment required to do this as saftest as your knowledge allows u, then take note. always atleast have these on hand. this is a short list of a few basic things u should have in a toxic eviroment. gloves(latex might be to thin to use, so double up or get something thicker than standerd latex gloves, along with gas mask made to filtrate any mentioned chemicals, goggles of course for ur eyes(looking like a geek is better than looking like you took an acid bath) aperines are great for keeping ur clothes in decent condition(if u could come across a full suit with immunity to low end acids then that would be a great helper for this project), being coverd is absolutely nessisary to prevent injury. note, im not an expert and i bet you arn’t either so take what i say as a helper and not as a complete manual for the safety of this project.
please read, read, and then read some more. any ?’s just post them and i will be back when i can.

This is a drug that in its pure form is not nearly as bad as you’ve made it seem to be. I’m glad you at least gave it attention in your blog, but as someone who studies pharmacology… I can see you’ve not done your research. There are many quick/easy methods of producing meth, yet if you actually don’t take these quick methods, a pure form can be produced. The “shake and bake method”, the “red white and blue”, and the “nazi method” are very dangerous. But if your the right person, and know where to look, actual chemical synthesis can be found. Much safer, and without buying such obvious things such as sudafed, vick’s nasal sprays, etc. Yeah you’ll still need Lye, from drain cleaner, and depending you’ll still probably need some starting fluid for your ethyl. But when referencing anything with drugs there’s only one FACTUAL site to go to. That’s erowid.com.

You people know the dangers, the risks, and the sadness, yet you put yourself in danger anyway? I am not an addict, and I never will be because I actually listen to the risks. I don’t want to mess up my life just so I can feel good for a couple of hours. It’s not worth it! People are buying drugs at maybe 40 bucks for a couple of doses. I say you are buying your pain. You may think you won’t get hurt, or addicted, or end up on the street, but it will eventually catch up to you!

People think that some ways of putting a drug in your body are safer than others. It doesn’t matter if you snort it, inject it, smoke it, shaft it, or take it as a pill…

DRUGS ARE DANGEROUS!

Do me a favor, listen, think of the long term effects, think of your family, and think of your life.

If you are addicted, and need help, there is a program called Teen Challenge. It helps you overcome your addiction, regain control of your life, and find peace within yourself. Teen Challenge is open to anyone, not just teens, who needs help.

It’s just common for those whov’e never had the experience to have an opinion they know nothing about except for what the media ingrains and maybe some instances where a person is no longer themselves(did it ever cross your mind they would have not been the same, crossed over to some other extreme, anyway) fact is that no extreme that is used to “find” oneself is healthy in and of itself, and it’s not easy for anyone to be true to the universal truth that encompasses us all. I stick to principles that keep my true motives or intentions in check, I completely understand my history and how it can influence me, I’ll eventually get around to attempting to understand it from the other person’s point of view(unless its totally backward then I just consider the source) and what truth holds any understanding for me, then I take responsibility for what part I played in it, then I focus on forgiveness, non-judgement, and corrective measures I sense in my heart, though I debate the hell out of their functionality, challenge my own narrow perception of understanding and allow myself the gift of growth any one can apply these tools to some confusing mess of an mistake they may find themselves in when they know that some essential part of them is being compromise or has been lost or stolen. For me the most important part is am I being true to who I want to be and who I know I am, or am I attempting to validate some egotistical characteristic that permits me to feel more than I really am due to someone else’s shortcoming or struggle and use it as a foothold to elevate myself? Using in and of itself isn’t the issue. would this make any less sense if I was under the influence or sober? If it did then use the formula I just gave and then see what universal truth holds firm to you that you just can’t shake. Thank you for your time.

Well, I hope you take a course in grammar. Punctuation would be good also. Oh and making sense, that would be your ultimate caveat. I hope you receive help for whatever has made you this way. BTW, sentences should always be truncated to 2 or 3 kilometers long to allow people to breathe in between reading them.

You CAPS LOCK freaks are also awesome as I know enough to entirely skip what you are saying. I long for the days of literacy.

Hi,
first days I was using it 2 or 3 hours before sex (it was wonderful),but now after 7 months am using it every day in special way using water-pipe (like hubble bubble).in this way you will use in low-dose basis.
I want to know how can I use it with minimum effectiveness.looking for safety instructions for users.

using this drug is increasing day by day in our country ( Iran ) mostly by Girls and women between 22-50.

will try to leave it up.

Hello people. I just wanted to say that Ive really enjoyed readfing all these comments. Ive become really interested in the technical data of crystal Meth, I didnt expect to be so entertained by other peoples views and thought.

All in all, Im currently under the influence and have been under the influence all week. My girlfriend of 4 years broke up with me a few weeks ago so I really needed a distration. So Crystal Meth seemed like the best choice. And let me tell you guys….. It Is…. LOL

Just to top it all off. I lost my job today (not because of the drug, but because my work are outsourcing my department)… this really sucks… So here I am again on crystal meth as I dont have to go to work tomorrow…. Or the next day…..

What to do…. what to do…..

Love you all people!

(69) small town says:

I am told that meth is regularly made with Allegra-D 12hr which I have been taking 2 a day for years now by prescription due to severe allergy problems, and yes i am always failing drugs screens but it is due to the medicine. I have smoked crack and watched some strange things with other people that smoke it with me… it made me mellow out and 30 minutes later sleep like a baby. I tried meth once as well and the same thing happen but I had NO EFFECT from it like I did with the crack. I have never know the feel of “high” as they put it other then picking up and drinking 3 beer, nor ever had the problem of getting addicted to ANY drug, God knows I have been on some that most would been complete junkies had they have had to take what I have in the past. But I am more interested in making it SAFELY for the weight loss. I have a bad thyroid problems, as well as many other problems and I know the crack helps with the pain. Around here it is all trash and not worth the money to spend it on.
So can you help me with a way to make it safely, if it does not help with the weight then I will have to just deal with it like I have for the past 6 years?

Hi I was surfing the net also looking for recipes like many people out there I’m not sure which way is the best way! But for me I got diagnosed with brain tuma and have a good couple of years to go…so I guess I’m out there wishing there is a kind person that would give me step by step instructions on making speed/meth . I can’t offer any prize for anyone wanting to help but Just the fact you would be helping me enjoy what I have left…I am an Aussie male who just wants a little help … Thanking you Chris

If your giving out the recipe and method I’d like to say good job well done, there is no need for users to compromise not only their sense of dignity to obtain it, but also their pocketbook, and at least know what they’re putting into their system. Plus if its safer than the processes that can blow you up all the better. I’d like to be privy to your knowledge if you have the time or inclination. Many blessings, and so let it be.

There is no simple method to make good meth. It is an art. Refined by practice. Making meth isn’t the solution to all your problems, rather it is the beginning of a new set.
Now here is some news for you nerds looking for recipes here of all places… you are retarded! There is a whole web out there and on this web there exists a whole clandestine community of cooks who help and teach and research together to ensure, no matter the changes in law, that we will always be able to make meth.
Muck found these chemists on his own. No one told him where to look, and he’s not going to tell you. Just letting all you nerds know that you are barking up the wrong tree.
Hahahahahahahahaha!

Muck the meth cook.

August 7, 2011 at 11:49 pm
(82) Ben says:

The odd thing about the series is that the chemistry is slightly off. In the beginning of the series when the main reagent was pseudoephedrine, the RWB process would theoretically yield upwards of 90% methamphetamine. However, this was only because pseduoephedrine as you buy it is in a specific stero-chemical configuration. Therefore, when you used to RWB process to create methamphetamine, you get a sterospecific product with just so happens to be D-methamphetamine. D-meth is the potent CNS stimulant. L-meth, the other form does not have the same qualities and is sold OTC as a nasal decongestant. The “Sky Blue” formulation that Walter makes in the show is made by reacting phenylacetone with methylamine, then reducing the imine to yield methamphetamine. However, since the chemical process that Walter uses is not sterospecific, then at best he would have 50% product and 50% cold medicine. That is unless he was able to separate the two steroisomers, in which case he would be able to make an ungodly large amount of money through legitimate means, as every chemical company in the world would be foaming at the mouth for his process.

Still a great show…

It tears apart families friends , jobs all you’ll ever have being possed by satan,&demons, die and go straight to hell, with Hitler the man who created it , just like herion. . I pray every person who reads this examins their life and find the God of all Gods his name is Jesus Chrit, the 1 who died for all of us , took our place on the Ccross that we deserved, to wash away our sins . Thats where Good Life is through Him and turn away from all drugs & alcohol. I’m so thankful 2 still be alive wiyh my Family that gave me another chance just like Christ does for all of us. please stop making it sharing recipies, and useing it not only 4 your sake but your kids and grandkids sake .

(100) Borohydride and Racemic says:

BEN- Yes!!!Reacting p2p(phenyl acetone) w/ methylamine results in a non stereo-specific mixture, 50%dextro (the one we want) and 50% levo. This 50-50mixture is relatively easy to separate into just D-optical isomer, if one uses a proper catalyst bed- The catalyst bed is vaguely mentioned in the show several times.
I believe that Lithium would be suitable, though a Probably more effective Redox agent would be Raney nickel. Also Palladium on Carbon would work, though through a Buchner filter @ 20psi of H.
Guessing that, unless your sitting in Sigma’s, Fischer or Mallinckrodt’s chemical supply warehouses getting one hands on Raney Nickel and Palladium on Carbon would be a bit tricky……but, very little is impossible

Oh also in organic synthesis the “pseduoephedrine” is a Precursor, not a Reagent.

Please cite one single instance of this happening. I doubt you will find this to be true.

Methamphetamine is currently prescribed under the trade name Desoxyn. Fabricating and perpetuating myths such as the nonsense you’ve written really detracts from your credibility.

So sick and tired of having people tell me METH is bad .. look outside or read a newspaper .. go to the bar or fly a plane .. hey maybe you would like to head over to Africa for a nice AIDS family vacation ?

EVEYTHING I AM offered as a youth of USA / Canada, will go towards the rest of the world. If not. Then I will die smoking and doing whatever I want. Thanks government :D

I do not use meth .. but many of my friends have .. and im one of the only reasons they gave a shit. Becuase they only had people like the wrest of you to depend on. And “that” is pretty &^%ing depressing.

Oh gracious me! I heard methamphetamine was baaaaad. Bad bad baaaaaad!! But then I read this blog… and realized that some very smart and enlightened people are interested in sharing their wisdom and experience regarding this baaaaad DRUG! Just say no people!

p.s. There are a number of well respected, historic figures, who’s daily use of amphetamine or methamphetamine is well documented. Heck…. some of them are full-blown American icons… who had a hand in forging the cultural/national identity that is America… Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, Adolph Hitler, Elvis….. so the moral of all this is…. JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS KIDDIES! You might be the next evil world dominator! Like Hitler!…. or even worse…. the next president of the united states!

(106) CasualMethUserforpastdecade says:

Actually I work as an addiction counsellor in a methadone clinic for people addicted to opioids (also an ex opioid addict who regularly used crystal meth). A few months ago we had picketers out front of the clinic because they were angry that our physicians were prescribing “METH”adone to addicts. You see, they also herd that METH was bad bad baaaaaad! Just say no!

I can honestly say that in 14 years of periodic methamphetamine use I don’t regret any of it. Im not saying that it cant hurt people.. of course it can. but most people can take it or leave it. After taking a few years of addiction studies at McMaster University, I’ve realized that regardless of the drug, only about 10% of the people who use it are at risk of becoming addicted to it. Alcohol, heroin, jib, crack…. whatever you fancy. 10% or less become addicted. so much for try it once and you are SOOOO fucked OMG!

doctor.get over it.a cook is a cook,u dont have to consume whats cooked.its by choice of the consumer to indulge.

in comparism to neglect,costly dicrimnatory acts of your health services to the extent where it results in “murder”.i mean seroisly,meth is a the second option from a doctor who wont treat you for failure to pay coin.

my point is,u can afford it with all that money in bank,but what about the poor n the pain of illness,wouldnt u agree meth is the best painkiller,treatment for example cancer is siply outrageous,so we buy meth.

n besides doctors like you ,n the richer need meth users otherwise there would be no coin n ur post as doctor would be made redundant

(114) Real Chemist says:

Methylamine can be made with formaldehyde and ammonium chloride. Remove the salt with a base. It is on wikipedia, for god’s sake. Methylamphetamine is bad because it used the wrong way. It is illegal so the pharmaceuticals, the fda, and the government can criticize it by definition, while peddling dextroamphetamine to children and adults. desoxyn is methylamphetamine. And it comes from pharmaceuticals. Just the fact that the spell check here accepts methamphetamine as correct and methylamphetamine as incorrect shows how effective the government and their partners have been in maintaining perhaps the biggest drug cartel in the world. Prescription medication, various forms of benzodiazepines, opiates and amphetamines and their derivatives kill more people than all illegal drugs combined. We accept their control because the strongest emotion is fear, with control as an opposite, as in stereotyping and narrowing the world around us by trying to rationalize people into definable groups. Their is a pecking order in society, with dominance and submission, dominance which produces great pleasure in the brain and can be as addicting as hard drugs, since it works using neurotransmitters, the same way that drugs do. We can’t fight the government, and since we must accept their control, we decide to control others as well. We do so out of delusion and pleasure. I am talking to people like “pam” in the post above, with messages of self-grandeur and delusions of others inferiority. People are taught to avoid judgement when it is not allowed to deny us the pleasure control gives us, ergo the only one in the room with control is the one denying it to us themselves. We are all drug addicts, in constant social rehabilitation, lying to ourselves and those around us shamelessly.

(116) Lil Dee says:

I was 13 when I first tried Meth and I am a recovering addict at the age of 21. I am facing the consequences of the choices I have made and the “friends” I chose. I have been clean since December 10th of 2011 and my thinking and memory as well as my appearance has changed drastically. I also have a 4 year old son that I neglected for a while but now that my head is on right we could’nt be any closer. The withdraw still hits me hard and its been 5 months. I attend the Meth free Project in Polk County, Florida and I was taught that it can last up to 18 months or more. The depression and anxiety is awful. The triggers can be anything from a song to a town that I may travel through. My temptations constantly haunt me but my son and the things I now have save me from relapse. It is’nt easy and I feel for anyone that is an addict (even if they don’t think so) There is much more to this drug then what is stated on a website. The best of Luck to the ones that want help.

(117) wow says:

are u guys serious?? asking for a recipe for an illegal drug on the internet… can u say paper trail dummies.. as an ex meth user let me just say GET A JOB it will keep you out of prison… the risks for cooking meth are far to much to actually do it.. If u get caught cooking you are looking at mandatory prison time of 3+ years depending on where you live.. not to mention the drugs addiction and side effects.. its to hard to get clean off of it to ever start doing it.. And cooking it is just as addictive because you are still inhaling the same fumes as you would if you were using the drug.. There are so many poisons that go into this drug and then you put them in your body and you cant imagine what your doing to yourself.. im only 23 and dealing with long term affects of using meth.. so i ask u to be careful in the decisions you make because I wouldnt wish an addiction to meth upon my worst enemy.. No one deserves to have to go through what I have in order to get and stay clean…

(118) wtf says:

This is sick. I have never tried meth, but I’ve watched my family on it. My uncles have done it their whole life, been in & out of prison, all fucked up looking with no teeth, overdosed more times than they can count(shoved ice cubes up each others a$$ to bring them out of overdose,sounds fun doesn’t it?!), ruined their childrens lives. My sister does it as well. Once she started she started ignoring her children, treating them like shit, scratching her face off, weighs 90 lbs & looked 40 within a month of doing it(she’s 25 btw). My mom did it when she was younger, now her mind is gone & she has epilepsy. All of these people have had multiple strokes as well. They get irate when they’re high & will beat the sh#% out of anyone in their path(child,woman, old person, innocent by passer). So stop blaming the govt for giving it a bad name, the users do. Have fun with your overdoses & your strokes & seizures!! Sounds totally worth it if you’re f%#$ing stupid!

I like how there’s a lot of commenters here asking for a meth recipe.

I also like how there’s a lot of people defending Meth, saying that it’s not as bad if it’s pure and that there are legitimate medically prescribed forms, and that the author failed to address those facts, when in fact she actually did address all of that!

Are you people on meth? Or just stupid?

Also, for those that lay claim that meth is one of the drugs that the gov’t uses to “imprison the impoverished” (as one commenter put it) are craaaazy. Marijuana, sure I’ll buy that illegalization has done more harm than good. But meth? NO WAY!

(121) Kiwi says:

Hey here in New Zealand, crystal meth is called “P” and costs $1000 a gram. The government has stopped the sale of cold medicines containing the precursor psuedoephydrine, which I assume is the main reason for the massive cost of meth here.

I have watched close friends start using it, once ecstacy became scarce, meth seemed to take over. Some of them haven’t changed one bit, they (we) have had some of the best times on it, talking rubbish and going out and enjoying life.

On the other hand, a few close friends have definately become addicted, hiding it from their friends, not wanting to do anything except smoke meth or go looking for meth. They can’t talk about anything except meth.

I have used it, I love the experiences on it (having in depth heart-to-heart conversations with loved ones, playing music, having sex!) it honestly makes those activities SO much better.

But, I can see the bad side to it, and from what I have read, it eventually stops you enjoying anything without it, over long use.

Just wanted to add to the comments, I sat here and read all of them!

PS Breaking Bad is awesome as shit! Season 5 just starting here!

I’ve never seen so many people go on a web page and ask for detailed instructions on how to make this stuff. How many out there are police? The internet is crazy, a bunch of meth heads askin how to manufacture. Your probably better off just buying, you can skip the whole felony manufacture just for some personal.This stuff isnt that dangerous if you know what your doing( cooking). That is key though. If your into this drug that much, eventually you’ll learn a little at a time just from being around cooks. Perfect your techniques, and dont advertise.I wouldnt trust some guys recepie unless you know why your doin what your doin. Meth, shrooms, lsa, dmt, are all interesting projects. But do your homework, otherwise you’ll have the E T folks all n your house, showering off your family n a chem shower.Which is weird because there really arent that many more fumes than in a autobody shop.
Ammonium nitrate, pills, lithium, ether/ naptha, and lye w a little water. lye will burn you and acid for gassing the freebase is corrosive.So take a little care and learn what your doin before you do it, not over the computer. It is addictive after you put together a good batch. You’ll want 2 do it again.

What a interesting bunch of comments.

Well I’ll add my two cents and add my advice here for anyone thinking of having meth.
You must realise that the good feeling it does add to your body while your high can very easily turn to your body craving it. There is no way to stop this craving and once it is developed you will create issues like the people that hate it will proudly protest. 

So here is my view and tips. 

- Only use half a gram at most once a  year and only in one sitting.

-  Drink lots of water when on it. On average five to eight litters of water. Failure to do this will result in meth mouth. Also keep wet face washer slightly in mouth when you crash.

-  Relax and chill when on it. Stay in typical sleeping position without any strain to any muscles. failure to do so will result in you looking older than a relic. Your muscles need a chance to relax. 

- Eat more than your average daily dosage of food and hydrate yourself very well while eating. Small food portions are better than one large.

- Respect your body. Feel High? Wait a good 45mins before going again. Don’t go hard and fast. Slow and steady.

- Never do it alone and make sure one person who isn’t taking it knows your doing it and will look out for you while your asleep.

August 16, 2012 at 11:32 pm
(128) Random says:

- Basic principle. If you can stay up 18 hours without drugs. Then that should be the max time you would ever let meth keep you awake. So best case is to stop smoking it 8 – 10 hours before you need sleep. Stay up longer than this time and your abusing your muscles and putting an extra strain on your body. Be sensible.

Now I might of missed something however I feel I have covered the basics here. Simple fact however, even after a small dose your body can crave it like no tommorow. If this is the case or you can see it happening. Stop! It’s that simple.
People who take it regularly have a body that craves it. Plain and simple. When you crave it it is easy to forget the simple steps above. Which come with side effects which can be tragic.

Meth is like any drug. It has side effects. The worst side effect is your body can crave it in a instant. Simple. Don’t let your body crave it.

I’m yet to hear of anyone who has followed my tips strictly. To have a problem with meth. It is those that let their body crave it that have the horror stories. Key word moderation and respect your body.

If anyone wishes to add anything to this then I welcome it.

For those that wish to reply with you are hooked first puff or it will make your life hell. They do not realise that you need to respect your body because if your life has become hell you haven’t respected it. Plain and simple.

Asking for receips HERE only shows your desperation. Why such a desperation? Because of the Meth ?!?!
The next step would be to crave for receips in the user comments of any NY-Times below an article about meth?

Meth for sure is one of the most destructable drugs one can take.

Can I just advocate a third side?

I like to think of myself as impartial. I have had meth (well, almost-meth (there was MDMA and stuff in it, you don’t get pure shit over here)) a couple of times.

I’m not going to lie; it was incredible. But I’ve felt better. Jeez, I did almost a half q in a night with no tolerance and it wasn’t the best.

Please… You are all at least as intelligent as me- know when to say “nah, that shit’s bad for you, let’s just smoke a bowl of weed”.

It’s a treat- a once-a-month party drug. Come on, be smart and work out the balance between a clean life and a dull one. Drugs have a place in society; why can’t it be a good one?

I’ve been checking for quite a while and haven’t come across anything yet and I hope I don’t. Its hard enough to block out the porn and pediphiles from your kids, now you have to keep the drug recipies away from them!!!! Crazy 8 has a good point about the pot, I dont smoke it, but I voted to legalize it. He is nuts if he thinks all drugs should be. Pot can do a lot of good for some people, besides that even if you smoke it for the high, I’ve never seen pot heads in a bar room brawl!!!!

If you’re 21 or over, do what the hell you want to do ’cause I’m about as interested in your opinion as you are in mine.. What I have noticed is a lot of beggin for the cookin instructions and a couple of people that seemed pretty knowledgable in the “how to”. Well I haven’t a clue “how to” and since I don’t have a [get out of jail free card] I don’t “want to” . At least not with the real stuff. So if either of you two “knowledgable” people that posted just enough to show you knew what the hell you were talking about would send me to the site so I could learn what and how much, I could make a killing teaching these “dumb-ass wanna be big time dealers” how to cook.

List of chemicals and materials

Dilute HCl – also called Muriatic acid – can be obtained from hardware stores, in the pool section.

NaOH – also called lye – can be obtained from supermarkets in the “drain cleaner” section. “Red Devil Lye” recommended.

Ethyl Ether – aka Diethyl Ether – Et-0-Et – can be obtained from engine starting fluid, usually from a large supermarket. Look for one that says “high ethyl ether content”, such as Prestone.

Desoxyephedrine – can be obtained from “VICKS” nasal inhalers. These are found at any drug store or grocery, etc. They contain 50 mg of l-desoxyephedrin e per container. Also known as methamphetamine. 6 containers will give 300 mg of l-desoxyephedrine.

Distilled water – it’s really cheap, so you have no reason to use the nasty stuff from the tap. Do things right.

DO THIS FIRST
Take the unmarked small bottle and spray starter fluid in it until it looks half-full. Then fill the rest of the way with water, cap the bottle and shake for 5 minutes. Let it sit for a minute or two, and tap the side to try and separate the clear upper layer. Then, draw off the top (ether) layer with the eyedropper, and throw away the lower (water) and cloudy layer. Place the ether in the marked container. Repeat this until you have about 1.5 oz. of ether. Put the cap on it, and put it in the freezer if you can. Rinse the other bottle and let it stand.

Extracting l-desoxyephedrine

1.Break open the inhalers, a pair of real sharp scissors does this well. Place the cottons that were inside in a bottle (the unmarked one) and close the lid. I use 6 cottons.

2.In the Pyrex dish, combine 2/3 oz. water and 1/3 oz. muriatic acid. Shred cottons in this solution, and knead for 5 minutes with your gloves on. Squeeze all juice out of filters after you knead, and discard them. This step bonds the HCl to the meth, forming the HCl salt (what you want). The salt is soluble in water, and thus dissolves.

June 24, 2013 at 1:16 pm
(165) Hdub says:

Having read through this article and its comments, I feel compelled to clear up some glaring misconceptions concerning methamphetamine and its manufacture.

Firstly, the notion that methamphetamine is a toxic, lethal poison is generally false. While it is true that many of the ingredients used to produce meth are toxic in their own right, none of these ingredients make it into the end product. They are primarily used as solvents and reactants to either extract pure pseudoephedrine from pills, or reduce the hydroxyl group in pseudoephedrine to create d-meth. They are not carried over into the finished meth, so you can relax…you or your loved one isnt taking drugs laced with drain cleaner and ammonia. Remaining waste products from the reaction are typically removed with an acetone post reduction work up to increase purity.

The second issue i see is that some people (mostly users) here are under the impression that because their meth is in crystalline form, it is pure, or mostly pure. This is false. While crystallized meth can be a good indication that a sample of meth is of high quality, it is not an absolute indicator. The crystallization of meth is the result of a time consuming post reduction work up, and for a single recrystallization, purity is typically increased by 1-3%. Cut can be added during recrystallization. Crystals are an indication that the cook is skilled and patient, but don’t take a dealers word that some meth is pure just because its crystallized.

June 24, 2013 at 1:52 pm
(166) HDub says:

Third, all of you kids asking how to make methamphetamine on about.com need to stop before you get yourself arrested, or blown up. It’s not illegal to know how to make meth, but it’s a felony to try. Making meth is easy, in theory, but like anything, does require an understanding of the THEORY. The information is out there…publicly available for anyone with an Internet connection. If you can’t find it with a few well chosen keywords and a few hours of reading, you have absolutely no business attempting something so dangerous and SO ILLEGAL for a few grams of what will likely be sub-standard meth. For the money it will cost you to make a couple grams of meth, go to your dealer and shell out the cash for a gram or two of his finest. You’ll have the same meth for the same amount of cash minus the felony manufacturing charge or 3rd degree burns, and the paranoia.

Bottom line: a little meth won’t kill you. In fact, in the right setting with the right people, it can be fun and enjoyable. Like everything, you need to use moderation and sound judgement. Don’t tweak for days on end, staying up for 72 hours with no food and no water while sweating your balls off and clenching every muscle in your body. While fun (until you come down), this is NOT GOOD for you. The weight you lose comes from your muscles first, then from fat. Your kidneys do their best to filter the nasties that result from muscle breakdown, but when you haven’t had a drop of water in days (and were probably dehydrated beforehand), your kidneys get PISSED OFF. That’s why they hurt at the end of a long binge, so do those guys a favor and knock it off! You want your kidneys to stick around and enjoy the party for a while, so don’t let the party get out of control. A little party on the weekend is a good time, and a big party every once in a while is a boatload of fun, but throw a rager, or a party every night, and eventually the cops get called and nobody has a good time.

Be safe, and be informed, folks.

I have allways been a drug user. I can manufacture meth anyway that it can be done ,and have. The fact is just because you think you can make meth. You simple minded can’t umderstand that a good cook isn’t made by the books he reads,but by trail and error. You can follow you’re directions and still only come up with nope that’s ( not dope) but any number of close rellatives,that have terrable side effects. So please take some advise the shake and bake method is the most dangerous thing you can do. Basically it’s a bomb between your two hand’s. And thumbs up to Hdub.

I have read the ingredients in meth, and I wonder why ANYONE would put that stuff in your body. Recently I had some meth heads near my house and I had known a couple before they got into it. They are not even close to the same beautiful people they used to be. On and off meth they are permanently changed. Plus they are both felons now. Way to go! I would encourage everyone to try and read up on this drug before you try it (not that I would ever do speed ever), but you should know what these people are like on and off the drug and also why you should say no to meth based on what toxic chemicals are in it. (and of course the likely to get to $2000 a month habit, which I know most people couldn’t really afford so they steal it)

Personally I think anything between consenting adults should be legal. Prostitution, polygamy, recreational drug use, etc. I’m not saying that I think any of these things are good but they really shouldn’t be anyone else’s business and in many cases the laws against these behaviors do more harm than the the things they outlaw. All that said, crystal meth is seriously bad stuff. While it does have some legetimate medical uses, doctors carefully titrate the dose. When used recreationally it is probably the most addictive drug available. If meth was legal it wouldn’t be so expensive that addicts have to steal to support their habit. Drug laws benefit pushers by making drugs expensive and profitable and they hurt addicts because they treated as criminals rather than helped.

It’s been a year until two days ago that I was a moderate meth consumer. I snorted (never smoked) meth and feeling like I had control of the drug I then realized it woul sooner than later control me. When high on crystal or ice your appetite VANISHES so me I would stuff myself (force feed) disgustingly the food always tasted like nothing but I knew that eating and giving my stomach it’s daily nutrients would keep that awful comedown feeling the next morning. Yes there’s ways to cheat the drug to your advantage which isn’t good because it makes you vulnerable to addiction IF you are weak minded. I have come a long way leaving a trail of drugs behind me, from 2009 to 2011 I was fairly addicted to ecstasy pills. It wasn’t until later that I found out that the majority of x pills contain meth. (That explained the long nights). After recovering from the x pill beatings dealing with the constant back pain and emotional breakdowns I picked up on cocaine…not as exciting I tell you in my opinion, METH IS ONE HELL OF A DRUG! So I say now to my conscious self this crazy train has come to a complete stop, I have a wonderful little boy and an amazing girlfriend all bullshit aside, I’m not a drug addict looking guy at all because I have never let myself get completely lost in the dope or any drug that isn’t Mary Jane. Yes I still smoke my weed I began a heavy pot smoker so I started from the bottom now I’m back cause the top is just too lonely(: ill enjoy my cold beers no cigarettes just bowls of green… I wish you all curious people luck because method isn’t just for anyone REMEMBER … You are but a rookie at the rodeo ! Take care and enjoy your lives the way they are very hipocritical of me but truly I warn thee
<b>Goodbye</b>

God you people are pathetic. If you want to make meth, go to erowid.com, plenty of recipes there. Personally I wouldn’t waste my time, did it once, had almost no effect on me while my friend was talking my head off for 24 hours…I’d rather learn how to make LSD.

This is to you, first get an education – if your leaving messages online, learn to spell the whole words out, and not use sh*tty street txt when making a message it looks seriously stupid.

And as for these morons asking for the recipies?. If your asking you are the last people on earth that should attain it. GET a f*cking education. Start with taking up science class’s – yea retards your going to have to pay out to get out. There is no simple out in life. You allready this – so get f*cking real.

I agree with the 48 year old man that says drugs are used as a void. They are. I only smoke weed and refuse to do any other drug. I am addicted to weed and have been smoking since 11yo, and I’m 27 now. I have ran to the drug ever since I can remember especially when I was stressed out. It doesnt effect my life much and I can hold down a job, pay my bills etc. But it is a void, and my guilty pleasure. Meth, cocaine, heroin are drugs I could never touch. I’m afraid of the high I may get and then I will want it more and more. I’m good.

Why are you on here if you are gonna cry around bout how meth ruined your life and be a buzz kill? Meth isn’t even addicting. You wanna know addiction try slamming heroin and all those opiates that literally make you wanna rip your spine out and cut your arms and legs off. The heebies! I will take any amount of shitting, puking, craving, and whatever else you can think of over the actual physical addiction of that shit. If ya take meth ya gotta be smart enough to realize you are gonna come down and probably wanna kill yourself cuz of depression but buck the f**ck up it just makes you a cry sack and you’ll get over it. If you are too weak to f**k with it and really attempt (and of course fail) suicide I suggest you stay away from anything that involves LIVING. Meth is actually a pretty safe drug… Damn near impossible to O.D. on. Hahahaha! But the cry babies who got destroyed by big bad meth ALWAYS think they are ODing and get people in trouble when they run to the hospital or tell their parents ect… My sis did 20 years over a quarter f**king gram so yeah You people w your lil tragic meth stories can lick me where I pee and go hang yourselves. Stop obsessing over yourself and stay away from any talk or anything to do w the sh* cuz nobody cares. Meth didn’t ruin your life you did by being such a goddamn pussy. Get the f**k over it.

One more thing… The ones who wanna judge everyone and tell them how bad they are and how they’re gonna burn in hell and OMG yadda yadda are generally the ones who are dying to indulge themselves in a nice twacked out runner but are probably on probation or some other situation has them having to keep their nose clean so they get on their high horse and hate on everyone else that just might get lucky enough to enjoy their life for a second.

(184) its all good or bad says:

For those of you who take direct aim at another, save it. Cant we give our opinions without “the im right youre wrong bullshit.” My opinion is the worst street drug out there today is oxycontin and fetanol. These opiate drugs trapped me as i got to the point i had to have them to function. The physical dependence resulting in withdrawal when you are without the drug is no joke. Mental dependence and cravings are serious to however they dont hold a candle to physical dependence trust me. To say marijuana is harmless is an uneducated assumption. I’ ve experienced severe temporary psychosis almost every time I gave weed another try along with the one time I tryed cocaine. All of these episodes were well beyond some of the small bouts of paranoia suffered by my friends doing the same drugs. Everyones chemical make up is different. Which drugs agree with us and dont will vary one person to the next. Most importantly enjoy your drug of choice in moderation. Meth in small monthly doses will not harm you. If you start using bi-weekly or weekly you are developing a problem.
