In brief: With Chronic Use

Chronic smokers of methamphetamine can experience health issues directly from the drug and secondary health issues due to neglect of their basic personal needs.
Elevated heart rate and blood pressure is dangerous. Neglect of personal hygiene and poor dental care can be a problem. Poor nutrition and lack of sleep weaken the body and the immune system. A collapsed lung is possible.
