Yaba (Thai: ยาบ้า, Lao: ຢາບ້າ, literally 'mad drug' or 'crazy pill'), are tablets containing a mixture of methamphetamine (25-35mg) and caffeine (45-65mg). The use of this drug combination is widespread, particularly in South and Southeast Asia.
In the Philippines and Indonesia it is shabú. In China it is ma-goo or ma-guo. Yaba tablets are typically consumed orally, but can be smoked or injected.  Increase in the use of methamphetamine, globally, has outpaced that of any other drug.
Yaba is cheap due to it's excess supply and extremely addictive. Within a few days of consistent use, an individual can become hooked. Rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure and damage to blood vessels in the brain (which can cause a stroke) are synonymous with yaba use. Yaba abuse and addiction cause serious mental issues. A person often displays extreme paranoia and confusion. Anxiety, aggression and violence are common. Yaba withdrawal is extremely unpleasant and lasts for several days.
