ROGERS, AR - A new form of methamphetamine is popping up in Arkansas.
The drug, called "ice," is a more potent form of meth and comes in the form of large crystals that are smoked in a pipe. Rogers police spokesman Kelly Cradduck says "ice" is to meth as crack is to cocaine.
Both varieties are highly addictive.
State officials say they already have more "ice" cases this year than they had all of last year.
