Washington Drug Information
Powdered and crack cocaine are readily available in Washington, although the availability of crack is largely limited to low income urban areas.
Mexican black tar is the predominant type of heroin found in the state.
Marijuana is readily available throughout the state. Three types marijuana are generally encountered: locally grown (either from indoor or outdoor grow operations), Canadian BC Bud from British Columbia and Mexican marijuana. Of these varieties, locally grown sinsemilla and BC Bud are preferred because of their higher THC content.
The state of Washington allows patients with terminal illnesses and some chronic diseases to use and possess a 60 day supply of marijuana once they have received documentation from their physician. The law protects the physicians and primary caregivers of the patients against criminal prosecution and/or penalizing actions by the state of Washington. However, possession or distribution of marijuana is still labeled a crime by the federal government, even for medical purposes. The Attorney General’s office has warned Washington residents that state law does not protect them from federal prosecution.
Methamphetamine is a widely abused drug in Washington and one which impacts all levels of the community. Methamphetamine in powder form (methamphetamine HCl) and a more potent form known as “ice” (crystal methamphetamine) are readily available throughout the state. Crystal methamphetamine now dominates the market in Washington as the preferred form of methamphetamine. In general, Washington drug rehabs are not prepared to deal with treating methamphetamine addiction.
MDMA (ecstasy) is smuggled into Washington primarily from Canada. Increasing bulk shipment incidents reported at the U.S./Canada border illustrate the continuing popularity of MDMA. Other synthetic drugs such as GHB, LSD and 5-MeO-DIPT (5-methoxy-n, ndiisopropyltryptamine, street name Foxy) have been seen on a smaller scale in the state.
Methadone use has increased dramatically in Washington.
