I think I met my first Meth addict a few weeks ago, worst waitress I've ever had. There are meth addicts, I'm sure it's a problem, but it's not going to change your quality of life in the city.

I got ripped off my a meth head. Didn't realize he was one until after the deed.

I have since met a counselor, there is a problem but no bigger than any other major city in this world.

You can't get good Methamphetamine in Albuquerque.
So, yeah, I'd say there is a meth problem here.

If you want the good stuff, go to Phoenix.

Who smokes pot then goes to the ER?

I'm sure you'll see more Meth addicts in ABQ than in Rhode Island (RI right?).

There is a meth problem. When you least expect it, you'll run into a meth head in a grocery store or on a street corner. Then you won't see one again for months.

I've been at the ER (not Lovelace but just down the street a ways) several times in the past year at 3 or 4am. I've never seen any meth heads, just some very drunk people. ER security at nights tends to be very good.

Thank you so much for your help. yes RI is rhode island. marijuana shows up in your system for a long time even when you are not "high".

Metabolites, pharmacologically inactive bits, remain in your system (they bind to fat cells) for as long as a month.

Anyone who thinks they are experiencing acute effects from marijuana use more than a couple of hours after smoking has pre-existing mental problems.

Cocaine, Heroin, and Meth metabolites are water-soluble and thus are flushed from the system in less than 48 hours. That is why it is better to be addicted to Coke and Meth when looking for a job. you only have to quit for two days before your pi ss test.

If you smoke pot, you might as well just live on the street because you aren't getting hired.
