Methamphetamine is one of the most abused drugs in Las Vegas. It can affect the mind quickly even in just low doses. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a dose of 10 to 30mg can lower the reaction time of the drivers.
The effect of methamphetamine varies from person to person. It depends on the size, weight, and the health level of the person. The common effect of methamphetamine includes:
- Attention Lapse
- Higher chance to take risk, aggressive driving, overconfidence in driving skills
- There is a lack of coordination
- Slow reaction time
Drivers under the influence of methamphetamine show behavior such as swerving, maintaining unsafe distances, failing to stop at stop-lights, and driving unsafely.
Studies show that it can take up to 5 days for the meth to leave the body. Its effect will last for several hours.
Nevada implements a strict rule regarding driving under the influence of meth. According to Nevada, “a person is not allowed to drive or be in control of a motor vehicle if there is a presence of Methamphetamine in his or her blood that is equal to or greater than 500 nanograms per milliliter, and 100 nanograms per millilitre in his or her urine.” Anyone caught driving under the influence of meth shall serve sentence of not less than 2 days nor more than 6 months.
