Examining Each Drug Individually
Marijuana is a huge problem in Indiana. Mexico cartels transport marijuana in 100 pound multiples using tractor trailer systems. There are also a few indoor production places, mainly residences or barns used for marijuana growth. Farm fields, forests, public lands close to river banks, and wood acreage are also used for local growth.
Pharmaceuticals including OxyCotin, Hydrocodone, Benzodiazepines, Xanaz, and Valium are abused. However, Hydrocodone and benzodiazepines are abused the most. Sources are through health care workers as well as “doctor shopping.” Online sales have also picked up recently. In an effort to reduce meth production, pseudoephedrine is now monitored and therefore less abused as a pharmaceutical.
Methamphetamine is rising in use. Most of the product is manufactured in Mexico or southeastern states. The shipments are then brought to Elkhart for distribution in Indiana. Organizations tend to cut the product two to three times, then distribute it to buyers in Indiana. To a smaller degree, local labs are producing enough meth for personal use and minor sales.
Cocaine is easy to obtain, particularly crack cocaine in urban locations. Use is not rising, but it is not getting better either.
Heroin is one drug that is not available in all areas like the central and southern sections. Most often heroin is found in northern Indiana. It is brought in by Mexico as brown and black heroin, while Southwest Asia brings in white heroin.
Alcohol is a moderate issue, but nothing compared to the above named drugs. Lastly, club drugs are not a huge concern in Indiana compared to other states.
