Brief Answer:
Single shot don't harm.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Single shot don't harm to the baby but Smoking meth repeatedly can lead to increased tolerance, physical and psychological dependence, and addiction. Repeated exposure to this harmful substance can create severe changes in brain structure and functioning as well, which may chronically impact cognition and emotions.

i have a friend that has been to the dr. in the past and he agreed something was deffinatly wrong with his liver and that it looked inflamed!but he never gave the full story to the dr. that he was a long time meth user for about 10 or more years and was a meth maker!so also exposed to anhydrous ammonia for the same amount of years!so my question is:being exposed to anhydrous and a meth user for so long causing liver damage,would that make it harder for his liver to flush toxins and release them from his body?how long would it take to pass a drug test?hes trying to turn for the better and joined a program and part of that is drug tests,he failed the first one then the second one and he honestly wasnt using!so were trying to figure out why?

Hi, my daughter died at age 25 from drug abuse, especially meth. I remember finding a brownish goo on her pillow case when she was a senior in high school. She also had a bad smell--like old onion. I'm wondering if you can tell me what that brownish stuff was? Thanks
