Methamphetamine is one of the most addictive drugs out there. It gives a high that can last up to 12 hours, and it’s a white, crystalline powder that can be snorted, smoked or injected. It has been around since the 1800s, however, in recent years it has gained more prominence due to its strong effects.

Methamphetamine is a drug that can be detected in saliva for up to 72 hours after use.

A 13 panel saliva drug test can detect methamphetamine in someone’s saliva for up to 3 days after the last dose. The test is a rapid, non-invasive, and inexpensive way to screen for drugs. It is also a good way to monitor drug use over time.
