This campaign came in response to the substance’s increased usage and spread among youth, often without their awareness of its lethal and life-threatening effects.

According to AND, crystal meth is highly toxic and dangerous, typically appearing as powder or crystalline granules. The department noted that addiction can occur from the first dose, leading individuals to escalate consumption to satisfy cravings, thus accelerating the onset of dangerous symptoms that may result in death or self-harm.

The substance inflicts severe health damage on users, including neurological damage, mental disturbances, hallucinations, severe insomnia, elevated body temperature, high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, emaciation, depression, tooth decay, lung infections, and aggressive behavior. Additionally, AND emphasized that these factors make crystal meth a threat not only to users but also to those around them, driving them to self-harm, harm others, or engage in criminal activities unknowingly.

AND urged all members of society, along with national media outlets, to contribute to spreading awareness about this substance and to report any information regarding its trafficking and distribution, considering the inherent dangers it poses to society and individuals.
