Yes, Meth comes out of your skin

yes, its true, meth comes out of your skin
YEs, its true. YOu skin is actually your bodies biggest expellectory organ, it helps to rid toxins.

when i was using, after several hours, if i would go into the sun, my skin would be shiny like crystals actually coming out of my skin. I was smoking ICE at the time.

Also, i would find 'crystal reforms' in my nostrils, crystals that would form there also after several hours of using. (remember, i was not snorting)

So the crystals come out through your entire body.

Re: yes, its true, meth comes out of your skin
The main function of the skin is to maintain constant body temperature. The skin shows wide fluctuations in blood flow, depending on whether the body needs to lose or conserve heat. Since meth is a stimulant and causes the internal body temperature to rise, there is an increase in the blood flow to the skin to counteract the temperature rise. In addition, the produced sweat contains an enzyme that acts on the tissue fluid to produce another compound to dilate the arterioles and increase blood flow to the skin even more. The combined effects on the skin create a sensation on the nerve endings located in the skin and cause feelings of "crawling bugs." Furthermore, when the sweat evaporates, it removes the protective sebaceous oil coating the skin, which eventually leads to dry skin. The combined effects of dehydration, sweating, and removal of the sebaceous oil all lead to formication, which is crank bugs, sores, acne, etc. The psychological aspects of the drug complicate the situation even more by causing users to "tweak- out" and pick at their skin.

The smell could be derived from traces of meth emitting from the sebaceous sweat glands working to eliminate the toxins stored in your body. Another reason for the offensive smell is that some methamphetamine production involves human urine. According to the Bureau Chief of Narcotics for the state of Montana, much of the seized methamphetamine originates from the Mexican Mafia and one constituent is actual human urine. This contributes to the yellow color typical of the prevalent meth seen in Montana.

YUCK...... I live in montana, I remember from my using days
meth that looked and smelled like that, the cat pissy stuff
was considered the good shyt.
I work at the hotel where they have been holding meth awareness seminars for law enforcment, medical and school
officials, odor was one of the ways to spot a meth user.
methods of manufacturing meth have changed over the years to the more popular anhydrious amonia method.
local wheat farmers can sell their liquid amonia for more than there crop, provided it isn't stolen first.

It actually DOES come out of your skin - that's why so many people in this county are walking around with "Drug detection Patches" on thier arms... but it's microscopic amounts, not baggies or crystals

During the summer around here you can tell who all the tweakers on probation are - they all have patches taped to their arms
