Catalyst - Addicted to Ice
Most people have heard of the illegal drug Ice, also known as crystal meth or methamphetamine. A few years ago, Ice was mainly confined to America but recently more and more of it is turning up in Australia. In fact, Ice is "ripping" through our streets, with 73,000 Australians now classified as users and over 2,000 methamphetamine labs having already been discovered.
With growing reports of Ice related crimes in the daily press, do we know why this drug is causing such social chaos? Ice has an image of being one of the worst drugs society has seen but what is it? Why is it so addictive and what exactly does it do to the body? We turn to science to sort the facts from the hype.
