Pockets of heroin distribution are present in other areas of the state as well, but the problem is less pronounced. Most of the heroin encountered in Virginia tends to be of higher-than-average purity.
Marijuana is the most widely abused drug in the state of Virginia.
The Shenandoah Valley region contains the highest percentage of methamphetamine abusers in the state. Methamphetamine and “ice” have also become drugs of choice at raves and nightclubs. Methamphetamine is highly addictive and poses a particular problem to Virginia law enforcement officials. Methamphetamine addicts may stay awake for weeks at a time, taking hit after hit of methamphetamine to maintain their high before finally collapsing into a sleep-deprived, highly paranoid state. When coming off meth, addicts are a danger to others and to themselves and pose a public safety hazard. Most Virginia drug abuse rehabs are ill-equipped to deal with meth addiction.
MDMA is the most readily available and frequently abused club drug in Virginia.
Pharmaceutical diversion and abuse continue to be a drug threat to Virginia, with OxyContin® (both brand name and generic), Percocet®, and Dilaudid® the most popular.
