Methamphetamine is the biggest problem in Montana. Cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy use are all on the rise in the state. Heroin is not a widely abused drug in Montana. In 2001, the Montana Youth Risk Survey indicated that 9 percent of high school students in the state had experimented with cocaine at some time.
Billings and Great Falls are the cities with the greatest cocaine problem. Crack cocaine use is a serious problem on the Native American reservations.
Ecstasy is the club drug that is becoming a problem in the cities, Billings and Great Falls, as well as in the college towns of Bozeman and Missoula. Other club drugs like GHB and ketamine have yet to become a problem.
Marijuana is easily available and is the most abused drug in Montana.
