The meth epidemic shows no sign of slowing down and affects people of all ages, races and different upbringings. The Polk Meth Alliance and the Georgia Meth Project are organizations aimed at reducing meth usage.
Even though the use of methamphetamine is itself a crime, there are other crimes that have increased significantly as a direct result of the abuse of this drug.
Crimes such as identity theft, robbery, burglary, domestic violence and shoplifting are just a few of the crimes that have increased due to the use of methamphetamine.
