Methamphetamine ( USAN ) ( pron.: / ˌ m ɛ θ æ m ˈ f ɛ t əm iː n / ), also known as metamfetamine ( INN ), [ 2 ] meth , ice , [ 3 ] crystal , [ 4 ] glass , [ 4 ] tik , [ 5 ] N -methylamphetamine , methylamphetamine , and desoxyephedrine , is a psychostimulant of the phenethylamine and amphetamine class of psychoactive drugs . Methamphetamine occurs in two enantiomers , dextrorotary and levorotary ; dextromethamphetamine possesses the well-known psychostimulant effects of the drug, while levomethamphetamine is CNS -inactive. Although rarely prescribed, [ 6 ] methamphetamine hydrochloride is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of ADHD and obesity under the trade name Desoxyn. Illicitly, methamphetamine may be sold either as pure dextromethamphetamine or in a racemic mixture.
The psychedelic drug / entheogen LSD was first synthesized by the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann in the Sandoz (now Novartis ) laboratories in Basel, Switzerland on November 16, 1938. [ 1 ] It was not until five years later on April 16, 1943, that the psychedelic properties were found. [ 2 ]
