How to make meth is one of the more popular searches on the Internet concerning illicit drugs. Two keyword research tools say that between 207 and 268 people a day are searching for information on how to make meth.

This is no surprise given the power of the World Wide Web. What is surprising, however is that someone would want to start a drug addiction outside of a social situation and peer pressure.

When one searches how to make crystal meth online the presumption is that they have either lost their supply line and want to do it on their own or are curious and want to experiment by starting a habit from scratch.

If you have come to this page looking for information on how to make meth, then its time to seek out a drug treatment program to get your life in order. How to make meth is not as important as “how to get my life back under control.”

According to a new study by Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Canada, large cities such as Montreal and Toronto have a smaller rate of drug and alcohol abuse than mid-size cities. In addition, cities on the Eastern and Western regions of Canada have a higher rate of drug and alcohol addiction than the central and rural areas.

The CAMH researchers list some of the possible explanations for this disparity as being the positive influence of immigrants, migration patterns within the state, availability of drugs and alcohol throughout the regions, the accessibility of treatment and local policies and culture.

CASA or The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, has sent out a little teaser of the survey results they will fully explain on August 16, 2007. According to the report, Chairman Joseph A. Califano, Jr will explain the in-depth survey of over 1,000 teens and over 500 parents nationwide that were asked about drug and alcohol use in the nation’s high schools.

According to the early reports, the survey will reveal that America’s schools are “infested with drug possession, use, dealing, drunk and high students.” This also leads to a culture that accepts this behavior and sets the tone for drug and alcohol abuse later in life.
