Crystal meth use can also have effects on others around you. Children of crystal meth users are at risk of neglect and abuse. Using crystal meth during pregnancy can impair growth, and cause premature birth, developmental disorders in newborns, and enduring cognitive deficits in children. Family and friends can also be affected, as crystal meth users have a tendency to pull away from their social network and isolate themselves when they are using excessively.
