1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Several possible ways- (1) communal use of a meth pipe (2) reactivation of herpes infection in a pt who was previously infected (3) intimate mouth-to-mouth or genital contact with an infected partner, either who may not exercise appropriate judgement if they were high.
(4) communal use of a needle if injecting meth and they " lick" the needle.
