    Dear Alazay,

    Crank is the slang term for methamphetamine. I layman's terms, it's speed. From what I've read recently, it's a mixture of Sudafed, cooked with lighter fluid, and reduced to a crystal, powdery form.

    I've only tried it a few times, nearly 20 years ago, and it's not fun. You get lots of energy, and you crash HARD when it wears off. I can't speak as to the long term effects, as I was lucky enough not to become addicted to it.

    I did have friends who were addicted, however. I no longer associate with them, but I know people would do "lines" of it, and then blood would pour out of their noses onto the mirror. I've heard it will literally eat your sinus cavity away, after repeated usage.

    Just curious, but why did you ask? Do you, or a loved one, have a problem with it?

    crank, or speed is BAD news - just read some of the posts here from others who have or had addictions with it.

    I met my ex husband when I was 21 in Texas - he was a former crank addict - and he turned me on to it - I was hooked immediatly - I snorted then shot it - it is a horrible drug. It's cheap - the econimical soluction for me that loved cocaine, and the high lasted much longer. The crash, however, lasts for days. I moved back to New England to get away from it.
