Exclusive: Deputy Fire Chief Speaks on the Methamphetamine Crisis

Recommended Posts



Weazel news recently received an anonymous tip of the first Methamphetamine overdose San Andreas has seen in a long long time. We reached out to the SAFR for comment, and we were granted a sit down with the Deputy Fire Chief of the SAFR.

WN: Chief Raven. What exactly are Methamphetamines?

Raven: Methamphetamines, commonly referred to as Crystal Meth, is a central nervous system stimulant. It can also be referred to as chalk, crank, ice and speed and it is commonly used through inhaling, injecting, swallowing and snorting. What it does, is it increases the level of dopamine in the brain, and dopamine does several things in our body, but most notably it's how we feel pleasure. The significant and rapid spike in dopamine is what gives that desired rush. 

WN: I can see why it's such an appealing substance to abuse, what are the health risks involved in using Crystal Meth?

Raven: It's a very addictive drug, but aside from that, it comes with a lot of health risk. Not only are you more likely to do something that is reckless, dangerous, or manic, but you are also more at risk for contracting infectious diseases like HIV, and Hepatitis B and C. In repeated use, there are other consequences like paranoia, violent behavior and hallucinations. Abusers of the drugs should seek help immediately, so they can receive support and treatment.

WN: What are the symptoms people would have when abusing the drug? 

Raven: Abuse Symptoms include High Body Temp, Mood disturbances, Anxiety, Paranoia, Delusions, Hallucinations, Repetitive Motor Activity, Overly talkative, excessive restlessness, grinding of the teeth, blown pupils, Impaired thinking and motor skills, memory problems, skin sores, appetite loss, malnutrition, dental problems and weightloss. The goal is to get help for people exhibiting this behavior before they find themselves overdosing on the drug.

WN: And what are the symptoms of a Crystal Meth overdose?

Raven: Overdose Symptoms include Respiratory issues, Chest pain, Irregular heartbeat, heart attack, Stroke, Seizures, Severe agitation, Paranoia, Extremely high body temp, kidney damage or failure. If anyone sees someone who is showing one or more of these symptoms, they are to seek medical help immediately. The longer it takes for them to receive help, the less chances they have to make it.

WN: So Crystal Meth overdoses can be lethal.

Raven: They are incredibly lethal. There is no known treatment to counteract a Crystal Meth overdose, unlike many other street drugs, it's all symptom management, and very close monitoring. Even with medical intervention, lethality is a major risk, so it is incredibly important that citizens are forth coming so we have the best chance possible at saving someone's life.

WN: What should someone do in the event of witnessing a Crystal Meth Overdose?

Raven: They should call 911 immediately. Then it's very important to find out the victim's age and weight, the amount they used, when it was last taken, and how it was taken. This is all information you should have ready for the responding medics as soon as possible. Do not leave the person unattended, flag down additional assistance if necessary. 

WN: What would you say to someone that is considering trying Crystal Meth.

Raven: I would ask them to consider those who care for them, and those they care for. Drug abuse affects everyone you're connected to, and it is incredibly selfish. But there is help and resources out there, and I encourage addiction counselors to reach out to our citizens who need them most.

WN: Alright, thank you for your time Chief Raven

Raven: Of course, thank you for having me.

And there you have it. What is your opinion on the Crystal Meth Crisis? Hyperbole, or is this heralding the end of the world the Mayans promised us? Comment down below.
