To be more specific, meth is the primary concern for Arkansas. The state has many meth labs in rural areas as well as trafficking from Mexico. Cocaine is the most persistent of drug issues in inner cities. Cocaine arrives in huge quantities from outside the US with distribution networks set up in Little Rock, El Dorado, Texarkana, Dumas, and Hot Springs. Violent crime and street gangs make it even more dangerous.
Marijuana is available in plenty of areas coming up from Mexico. The demand is high and there are definitely some growing locations in the state. Indoor cultivation and outdoor sites are decreasing with more attention from law enforcement.
Pharmaceuticals have been on the rise with hydrocodone and Vicodin as the main products. There are still others like morphine and Demerol that remain high in usage too. Several pharmacy break-ins and doctor shopping has occurred of late.
Club drugs are more youth and college-related, while heroin and alcohol are of little threat.
