Looking at Individual Drug Use
Examining individual drugs it is clear that Meth is the biggest problem for Alabama with many local labs found in rural communities. Street sales are fairly evenly divided into Hispanic and Caucasian areas, while small-town meth use is increasing.
Marijuana is also becoming a larger issue with many states starting to allow legalization. Overall Marijuana is still an import business, with numerous arrests in recent years. Many of the suppliers move through Florida up to Alabama with Marijuana.
Club drugs like LSD, GHB, and Ecstasy are on the rise for younger people particularly college-age; however, overall the usage is not as high as others.
Cocaine is definitely a major threat to any state including Alabama. While lower in usage than the previous drugs, cocaine is still supplied through many sources coming out of California, Arizona, and Texas by way of Mexico.
Pharmaceuticals and heroin are also rising in usage for Alabama, while alcohol holds a lower threat.
For anyone who is tired of being addicted to drugs, Ibogaine treatment is the solution. It holds the answer to stopping drugs through proper treatment as well as helping with later addiction issues.
