Maine Drug Information
Cocaine is available throughout Maine in fractional-ounce to kilogram quantities. The popularity of crack cocaine continues to increase in southern and central Maine communities.
While the use of heroin is more prevalent in Maine’s southern communities, it is also encountered in coastal and Canadian-border communities and has spread into rural and remote areas.
Marijuana, historically the illicit drug of choice in the state, is plentiful and readily available. Year-round indoor grows are common, but high-grade marijuana cultivated in Canada is smuggled over the border. Maine has a number of statutes related to marijuana possession, cultivation, trafficking, therapeutic research programs, paraphernalia, illegal importation and asset forfeiture. These laws are often cited as the reason that Maine residents must travel to obtain their illicit drugs from out-of-state traffickers wary of the state’s tough drug laws.
Methamphetamine remains a minor drug of concern in Maine, although abuse and availability have increased in Aroostook County, as evidenced by reports of “Yaba” seizures at the northernmost border points with Canada. Methamphetamine dependence is a public safety threat in Maine, as methamphetamine addicts have been known to go on meth binges lasting weeks without sleeping. When the meth addict finally comes down, he often hallucinates and can even become violent. In this paranoid state, he is a threat not only to himself but to law-abiding Maine residents.
Law-enforcement officials in southern Maine continue to encounter MDMA use, which continues to be associated with rave parties and the student population. Canadian-produced “Enhanced Ecstasy” has been encountered at the northern border.
Current investigations indicate that diversion of OxyContin® continues to be a problem in Maine. Methadone has also been identified as being among the most commonly abused and diverted pharmaceuticals in Maine.
