The College of Medicine at the University of Baghdad hosted a scientific lecture on the detrimental effects of the drug “Crystal/Methamphetamine” on bodily functions and the nervous system, attended by faculty members and students.

The activity aimed to raise awareness about the adverse effects of Crystal methamphetamine abuse on the nervous and circulatory systems, as well as its impact on the urinary system. Additionally, it shed light on the prevalent misuse of Crystal methamphetamine as a form of unintentional drug abuse.

The lecture covered several topics, including an overview of the chemical composition of Crystal methamphetamine and its chemical manufacturing process. It also discussed how its narcotic effect occurs in the brain and its overall impact on the nervous system in both the short and long term. Furthermore, the lecture highlighted the effects it causes on the heart, arteries, urinary system, and the chronic negative consequences, commonly referred to as the “point of no return,” for its users.In conclusion, based on research and field studies of eighty cases of drug abuse tracked by faculty members at the college, it was recommended that the harmful health effects of Crystal methamphetamine abuse for more than two years cannot be avoided. These studies also revealed that the danger of this substance lies in its myriad of consumption methods, which are almost countless. As for its impact on the psychological nervous system, recovery from its harmful effects is possible through collaboration with specialized rehabilitation centers and facilities, as indicated by field studies involving the monitoring of 165 cases of drug abuse.
