YABA (also spelled Yaba) tablets are a combination of methamphetamine and caffeine, typically used as a recreational drug. Originating in Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand, Yaba translates to “crazy medicine” in Thai. These tablets are usually red or orange and have a strong smell. They can be swallowed, inhaled after being heated on foil, or dissolved in a beverage.
