‘Ice Age’ accounts the hidden, growing wave of the highly addictive, cheap and powerful Ice, or crystal methamphetamine, the drug that has medical uses as well as the potential to cause addiction.

Addiction typically occurs when a person begins to use the drug as a stimulant, for it can improve sex, mood and energy, alertness and ability to concentrate, and weight loss and appetite suppression, among its other psychological and physical effects.

Though over time, tolerance develops and makes it difficult for the users to function normally and experience pleasure as they did before and this condition then persists indefinitely due to neurotoxicity produced by methamphetamine in long-term recovered addicts.

This film highlights how this drug plays havoc with the minds and the bodies of addicts, creating dangerous, psychotic patients. But little is known about the long-term effects of the drug or even how to treat the addiction.
