Colorado borders seven states: Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Arizona. Mexican and Columbian drug cartels often smuggle illegal drugs in the state, especially high potency marijuana.
Although marijuana is now legal in the state, there has been a 407 percent increase in smuggling busts of illegal marijuana throughout Colorado. Drug traffickers often use cross-border sophisticated tunnels ranging from 55-411 feet long to smuggle drugs from Mexico.
Since marijuana is widely available in the state, it is sold for twice the price on the black market in other states where it’s illegal. Illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine and “club drugs” like ketamine and ecstasy are also widely available.

In Colorado, legal medical marijuana passed in 2010, followed by recreational marijuana in 2012. With the emergence of medical marijuana and recreational marijuana businesses, pot is widely used in the state.
Marijuana use affects children and teens more than adults. Since marijuana is now legal, Colorado has seen an increase in marijuana exposure and ingestion among children and marijuana-related incidents in teens.
In 2011, approximately 31.2 percent of Colorado 12th graders admitted using marijuana in the last 30 days. In addition to marijuana use, prescription drug abuse is becoming more of an epidemic.
Prescription Drug Abuse in Colorado
In 2012, the number of people who died from opiate overdose more than doubled those who were killed in drunk-driving accidents. Colorado is ranked second out of all the states with high rates of pain pill abuse. Prescription drug abuse of painkillers such as OxyContin and Vicodin often drive heroin abuse.
Commonly Abused Drugs
Heroin - Because of a crackdown in the overprescribing of legal drugs and the increase in prices, users have turned to cheaper heroin. Since the purity of heroin has risen to 50 to 90 percent, it has resulted in a spike in overdose.
Cocaine - A steady supply of cocaine comes into Colorado from Mexico. Crack is a significant problem in the metropolitan areas of the state.
Meth - The strength of Mexican methamphetamine has recently risen to levels equal to the methamphetamine made in smaller labs. These ‘secret labs’ create public safety, health and environmental problems.
Synthetic drugs - Spice and other synthetic drugs have resulted in several hospitalizations and even death. In one month alone, more than 200 people were poisoned and at least one person was killed by synthetic marijuana in Colorado.
