Methamphetamine (a.k.a. meth or crystal meth) may be on the rise in Fort St. James.
RCMP say there have been increasing reports of meth in the community. Crack cocaine is normally the most common hard drug they deal with, but more incidents involving meth have been reported.
While crack cocaine is a dangerous drug, meth can be an even bigger concern, because of the dangerous ingredients it contains and the nature of the manufacturing.
Meth is also incredibly addictive, which could potentially lead to more drug problems.
“I don’t want to see it become the drug of choice,” said Staff Sergeant Paul Thalhofer.
Anyone using illicit drugs should consider the dangerous nature of methamphetamine use an the toxic chemicals used to manufacture it.
