Also slang for low-grade Crystal Meth
. A bag of shards weighs a quarter gram
and varies in price from $20 to $50, depending on purity, luck and location. Upon closer observation one can notice pieces of different sizes, ranging from three millimeter

By the time one purchases it, white shards take a few weeks to turn yellow, at which point it is supposed they go bad. However, most people consume them far before they reach this state.
An eighth of a gram keeps the average person up for two days, making the splitting of a bag for a party common practice. Key bumps are used for short bursts of energy.
Also, if you didn't know, this is (health-wise) one of the worst drugs you can do. Last time I indulged I came down with a throat infection a few days later, while my girlfriend got a sore throat -- basically, your immune system is rendered useless.
