A method of making crystal meth in small batches without
a heat source. The method involves
mixing and shaking ingredients in a container, such
as a 2 liter soda
bottle. By preparing the drug in small quantities, cookers can avoid purchasing limits on over-the-counter medicines. Addicts can also prepare their own supply, bypassing dealers. Shake
meth can be prepared in bathroom stalls
and moving vehicles. The chemical reaction involved in shaking the ingredients can create an explosion, and the drug itself has obvious health risks. Also called
“one-pot” and “on the go” meth.
