Not dangerous once: The worst that could happen is that it might give you an "eps" reaction, but would be overcome by 50 of benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but i'd not want to do that on an ongoing basis due to cumulative risk of parkinsonian side effects or tardive dyskinesia movements.

Psychosis risk: The only imminent danger is psychosis from a mental health angle. Physically it could induce a myocardial infarction, hypertensive crisis or stroke. A subclinical risk with meth abuse on an ongoing basis is the "burnout" or attenuation of Dopamine and norepinephrine neurons/ receptors, which results in not being able to enjoy things....Winning lotto numbers wont' even excite you.

Not really: It's going to diminish lung function a bit, and thereby indirectly affect healing and overall health, but it does not have the vasoconstrictive effect of tobacco, so not as bad.
