California has a significant problem with illegal drugs. Cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana are all smuggled into the state from New Mexico. Methamphetamine and marijuana are produced in large quantities in California. The San Diego area is a transshipment zone for many drugs from Mexico.
Northern California has a big methamphetamine problem in more rural areas, while heroin is the number one drug of abuse in San Francisco. Cocaine is easily available throughout the state. Los Angeles is one of the country’s largest cocaine centers. Marijuana is the most widely available and abused drug in California, with much of the supply coming from Mexico.
