What you should know

Indiana is an active drug transportation and distribution area. Automobile, trucking and airline trafficking are the primary means of drug importation, with busing systems as a secondary means. Mexican groups are the main wholesale distributors of marijuana, powdered cocaine and meth.

A closer look

Marijuana

A significant problem. Mexican organizations usually transport Mexico-produced marijuana in multi-100-pound quantities via tractor-trailers. Locally produced marijuana is cultivated indoors in private residences or barn-type buildings — and outdoors in farm fields, wooded areas, national forests, public lands and near river banks.

Pharmaceuticals

Hydrocodone and benzodiazepines primarily abused. Xanax and Valium are drugs of choice, but OxyContin continues to be a threat. The main sources are the illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping” and forged prescriptions. To help reduce meth production, retail stores monitor inappropriate sales of pseudoephedrine, a major component of meth.

Cocaine

Readily available. Crack cocaine is primarily available in urban areas.

Methamphetamine

On the rise. Meth in Indiana is manufactured in Mexico or the southeastern states. Elkhart is often a transshipment and distribution center for the Mexican organizations, which cut the product two or three times before distribution. Local, independent labs produce just enough of the drug for personal use and limited sales.

Alcohol

A moderate problem.

Heroin

Not readily available in central and southern parts of state. In northern Indiana, Southwest Asian white heroin and Mexican brown and black heroin are available.

Club drugs

Not a significant problem.
