While meth can be identified by look, smell, and taste, it is often easier (and safer) to identify a meth user by examining the paraphernalia they use and their behaviors rather than by examining the substance itself. People who abuse meth may have different paraphernalia depending on which method of administration they use.
- Paraphernalia for smoking meth – glass pipe and lighter
- Paraphernalia for snorting meth – razor blade or sharp edge, rolled-up bills or cut up straws, and surfaces with powdered residue
- Paraphernalia for injecting meth – A bent spoon, cotton, lighter, syringe, and needle
