Maryland Drug Information
Cocaine and crack cocaine abuse and distribution are significant threats throughout Maryland, especially in areas near Washington, DC. Wholesale amounts of cocaine are readily available via suppliers in New York City, the southwestern U.S. and the Atlanta, Georgia area. Additionally, law enforcement sources in cities and towns located along the Eastern Shore and in western Maryland cite crack cocaine as the primary drug threat in their areas.
Heroin is abused throughout Maryland, but is centered in and around the city of Baltimore, where high-purity heroin is readily available. Baltimore is home to higher numbers of heroin addicts and heroin-related crime than almost any other city in the nation. These problems tend to spill over into adjoining counties where many heroin distributors maintain residences. The enormous demand for heroin in the Baltimore metropolitan area led to an increase in the drug’s abuse among teens and young adults, who routinely drive into the city to obtain heroin for themselves and other local abusers.
Marijuana is the most readily available and commonly abused illicit drug in Maryland.
The demand for and the availability of methamphetamine are not high in Maryland, although the availability of methamphetamine imported from Mexico and the southwestern U.S. may be slowly increasing.
Current investigations indicate that the diversion of oxycodone products continues to be a problem in Maryland. Benzodiazepines, methadone and Klonopin are also among the most commonly abused and diverted pharmaceuticals in the state. Drug dealers in Maryland are selling prescription drugs in the same way they sell street drugs. Maryland residents are also becoming hooked on prescription drugs such as OxyContin even when they have a legitimate prescription for the painkillers. After their prescription runs out, their addiction drives them to seek illegal methods of obtaining the drug. Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing form of drug abuse in Maryland and nationwide.
