Hawaii Drug Information
Powder cocaine remains popular and readily available throughout Hawaii and is often used in conjunction with other drugs including heroin and marijuana. The demand for cocaine is perpetuated by the tourist industry. Seized cocaine is usually concealed in vacuumed sealed food bags, Ziploc bags and fibrous paper type bags heavily taped with either clear tape or other nonmetallic tapes. Most of the heroin seized in Hawaii is black tar heroin. Black tar heroin is named for its appearance and originates mainly from Mexico. The incidence of heroin abuse is increasing in Hawaii and nationwide as the growing population of opiate addicts turn to heroin for a cheaper high. Purer forms of heroin allow Hawaii youth to ingest the drug in other ways than injection. Marijuana is widely available and abused in Hawaii. At the end of FY 2007, there were 3,240 registered patients who were able to utilize marijuana for medical purposes under the Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Crystal methamphetamine is the drug of choice in Hawaii and is considered to be the most significant drug threat to the state. The widespread use of crystal methamphetamine has had a devastating impact on the Hawaiian economy and family structure. In addition, the drug’s presence has increased street violence and property crimes. Intelligence indicates that the majority of the crystal methamphetamine available in Hawaii is produced in Mexico and California. Abuse of predatory drugs, including MDMA, GHB and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), is increasing among Hawaii’s youth and the large military population stationed in Hawaii. These drugs are readily available and typically consumed among military personnel, teenagers and young adults attracted to dance clubs, raves and bars. Hydrocodone is one of the most abused pharmaceutical drugs in Hawaii. The drug is readily available in the counties of Honolulu and Hawaii.
