Uncertain amount: The amount of street meth needed to overdose is unknown. It depends on the concentration of meth, the other drugs mixed into the meth, the body size of the user, whether or not the user is an addict, etc... Meth can kill rapidly by fatal heart rhythms, heart attacks, and strokes. Meth also causes psychotic and aggressive behavior, which can lead to deadly accidents or being shot dead by the police.
