Who invented meth?

Answer

The combination of amphetamine and ephedrine were first synthesized in 1893. The inventor was Nagai Nagayoshi of Japan. He was a chemist and coined the term methamphetamine through adding the various chemicals that were compounded to make the drug. Akira Ogata, a pharmacist, first crystalized it in 1919. Popular use was widely spread throughout the military during World War II for sicknesses like depression, fatigue, or lack of productivity. Side effects were studied only after the drug was heavily used throughout the world, counteracting its effectiveness and making it illegal and dangerous to health.
