Juice left home at 14. He found crystal meth soon after.

His brother had older friends, and it was through them that he was introduced to the powerful stimulant. A month after he first tried smoking it, he started injecting.

"It all just spiraled from there," he said.

Though the city's focus of late is centred firmly on the opioid crisis, crystal meth use in Hamilton has skyrocketed in recent years. Fentanyl commands increased attention because of the sheer number of people who are dying from overdoses, but crystal meth, blooming in its wake, still poses a serious danger.

Police, social agencies and drug users themselves all report that the powerful stimulant has grabbed a hold of some of the city's most vulnerable.

Blooming or ignored for 20 to 30 years like in the US?

I guarantee Colorado has had a meth problem for a good 30 years.
