Methamphetamine is sometimes distributed in an oily, waxy, gooey form.  Information on why this form results and how it is typically administered is limited.  Some have suggested that it results from an incomplete cooking process.  This form can be difficult to dissolve since it is not soluble is water, and it can be difficult to snort.[1]
