E-Meth Becomes A Real Thing… Maybe.

e-meth-foxOut of the pages of a Saturday Night Live script, e-meth was born.  Now, cops in Georgia claim that they pulled over two suspects and found they were smoking meth using an electronic cigarette.  But there’s something fishy about the whole tale.

Commentators on the story on the whole do not appear to come down for or against electronic cigarettes.  Indeed, the main reporter actually says, “e-cigarettes have been extremely beneficial for individuals that have been trying to quit smoking.”  He goes on to say that they help users cut down on their craving for nicotine.  It sounds like the reporter may actually know an e-cig user.

meth-cubesThe story gets a little hazy from there.  It seems two suspects were being pulled over on belief of having stolen a gun.  What police found instead: some cubes of meth (apparently meth comes in cubes) and electronic cigarettes.  You can watch the video and read the story right here.

Now, I’ve got to editorialize a little more than normal here.  I’m not very familiar with the intricacies of meth, but I’m pretty familiar with what it takes for most electronic cigarettes to function.  And while there may be ways to deliver meth via an electronic cigarette, it seems unlikely that these men found a way to cram cubed meth into an e-cig and smoke it.  I am more than willing to accept that I may be wrong on this fact.

headshotsHowever, the story only says that meth cubes and electronic cigarettes were found in the same car and police don’t actually say that the e-cigs were in active meth use when found.  That doesn’t stop them from warning people that meth users could be e-smoking their meth right in front of you and you might not know.

Isn’t it possible that these individuals — who don’t look as rough around the edges as you might expect — were using their e-cigs for the intended purpose?

      LOL!!! prob a setup on both sides for publicity, but still stupid… anyone that vapes or uses meth would never ues(waste meth) with a ecig type device… idiots on both sides right here… so, if i have a cold drink, and meth in my car, then i was using the cold drink to smoke meth… do away with cold drinks… next drama issue??? c’mon, lets have it, next issue??? LOL… cops, mcdonalds, walmart employee– all have same goal–>to draw a paycheck to pay bills and live life… no matter their words, they are only there to draw a check… the job itself it whatever you make it… again, this situation is LOL…!!! they should stop while before they make themselves look even more stupid then they are already portrayed in that region of the USA…

        Ridiculous. They could have also just you know smoked the meth like a normal meth head. If you found cigarettes in the same car would you assume they were using these to smoke it. Oh damn and the car would just smell like tobacco…these are scary times we live in. Terrible story. So many details missing. Please just stop trying to demonize ecigs with your passive aggressive BS. You can still keep your cancer sticks and cirrhosis juice.

          As someone who has used crystal meth on a social level for ~7 years, I can tell you that it is in fact near impossible to benefit from using an eCig battery/atomizer to properly vaporize meth. You will corrode and destroy the atomizer, much less get a proper amount of vapor from the smoke. You would have to dilute it heavily to have it even vaporize enough to feel a tickle, and you would burn a massive supply to get a good buzz that one old fashioned “meth pipe” bowl would give you.

            The ironic part is they were making themselves healthier by not smoking tobacco, yet they smoked one of the most addictive drugs.

              C’mon now. A true meth head would never waste their money on a Ecig when they could use a piece of foil and a straw outta a dumpster for much better results. These obviously where dealers who are now living a healthier life of cigs lol.
