What's the difference between "crank" and "crystal meth"?

I found out today that I don't know as much about street drugs as I probably should.

Know the big difference between crystal and crank?

"Crystal" has seven letters, "crank" only has five.

A term once used mostly to distinguish down-and-dirty bootleg meth from its crystal-clean sibling, "crank" has become a generic nickname for all forms of speed. And that includes the tablets and capsules that find their way out of the local pharmacy and onto the street.

Right on the money on that reply.
You seldom see true Crystal meth anymore, it is all crank, or clan lab produced crank these days.The tabs and pills are usually the ADD/ADHD meds, and is seldom seen as well (Oxycontin and methadone are far more profitasble to steal)

The term crank supposedly comes from the days when motorcycle gangs would smuggle the meth in the crank shaft cases of their motorcycles.

NOTE: This is different from CRACK, which is a cocaine based drug, processed with a base (usually ammonia) to allow it to withstand a direct flame.
