In Colorado, many illicit drugs are a problem. Cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and “club drugs” like ketamine and ecstasy are widely available. Marijuana, however, is the most abused drug in the state. Eighty percent of prisoners in the system in Colorado have substance abuse problems.
A steady supply of cocaine comes into Colorado from Mexico. Crack is a significant problem in the metropolitan areas of the state. 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.
