What is ice?

According to the Melbourne-based Alcohol and Drug Foundation, crystal methamphetamine, also known as “Ice” is a stimulant drug which speeds up the neural transmission between the brain and the body.

It’s stronger, more addictive and therefore has more harmful side effects than the powder form of methamphetamine known as “speed.”

“Ice” usually comes as small chunky clear crystals that look like ice. It can also come as white or brownish crystal-like powder with a strong smell and bitter taste.

“Ice” is also known as: crystal meth, shabu, crystal, glass, and shard.
