Description:Methamphetamine use and manufacture has an impact on communities and on families. Children are affected both by exposure to harmful
chemicals, exposure to the drug itself, and by the parenting styles of adult methamphetamine users. Their behavior in the classroom is often affected by
these factors. This presentation provides a general overview of what is known about the drug, its manufacture, and the impact on the behavior and emotional
well-being of children who live in homes with methamphetamine-involved parents.
Presenter Bios:Dr. Ralph A. Weisheit is a Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice at Illinois State University. He is the author of eight books,
including Methamphetamine: Its History, Pharmacology, and Treatment (co-authored with William L. White), and Domestic Marijuana: A Neglected
Industry. In addition to his research on illicit drugs, Dr. Weisheit has conducted extensive research on rural crime and rural justice. He has published more
than 40 journal articles, and numerous book chapters and solicited essays.
