Areas of Specialization
Stimulants mimic the action of adrenaline and dopamine, increasing heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate. Like adrenaline, meth increases your heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate. Crystal meth also constricts blood vessels, dilates pupils, releases sugar and fat into your blood stream and energizes the brain to increased alertness.
Marijuana is a common name for the hemp plant, cannabis sativa. Also known as “pot,” “grass” or “weed,” marijuana contains 61 known relatives of the primary active ingredient, Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and more than 400 known chemical toxins. Burning marijuana produces even more toxic compounds.
