No: Activated charcoal will absorb things in your stomach and intestines if you take it by mouth; it will not pull methamphetamine you have smoked out of your blood.

No: Charcoal is given by mouth for people who have ingested toxic substances by mouth. It does not work for drugs that have been taken in by smoking. The way to stop the toxic effects of methamphetamine is to not take it in. Worry more about getting yourself out of an addictive spiral than trying to undo harm you have already done. Get help from a treatment program and stop using.
