Nebraska is located in the Great Plains and the Midwest region of the United States. The state borders South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming. With great access to major neighboring states, drug trafficking is increasingly becoming a problem in the region.
Omaha, Lincoln, and ten other cities and counties are considered “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas” or HIDTAs. Crystal meth, crack cocaine, and prescription drugs sold on the black market are the biggest problem facing Nebraska residents.

In the most recent survey, Nebraska’s rate of illicit drug use is 6.43 percent while the national average is 8.02 percent. Although substance abuse of illegal drugs is lower than the national average, Nebraska still has a rising drug problem.
The metro city of Omaha is used as a distribution hub for the Mexican drug trafficking organizations to transport methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana. Prescription meds sold on the black market also pose a threat to both urban and rural communities in Nebraska.
Crystal Meth Problem
Methamphetamine is the greatest challenge and concern for law enforcement in Nebraska. With concentrated gang activity in Omaha and several drug dealers traveling into rural areas from the crossroads of I-80 and Highway 83, drug trafficking rings are prominent throughout the state.
According to the Omaha Metro Drug Task Force, Mexican “Ice” methamphetamine is making it’s way into the state from distribution hubs in Sinaloa, Mexico and the Southwestern region of the United States.
In one particular region of Cass County, near Omaha, there were more meth lab busts than anywhere in the state, with approximately 90 pounds of meth seized in 2013. However, meth isn’t the only drug that poses a threat to Nebraskans.
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
Nebraska doesn’t have a prescription drug monitoring program so many people are doctor shopping, targeting local pharmacies, buying it on the streets or robbing homes. People from at least 24 other states have been arrested for pill shopping.
Due to the spike in prescription painkiller abuse, Nebraska drug rehab centers have increased in admissions for opiate addiction.
The most commonly abused prescription drugs include:
• Opiates - Prescription painkillers such as OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin.
• Benzos - Tranquilizers prescribed for anxiety and sleep disorders such as Xanax and Valium.
• Stimulants - Used for ADHD and anxiety disorders such as Adderall and Ritalin.
The crack cocaine problem is in Nebraska’s urban communities. Cocaine is usually cooked into crack cocaine and distributed in urban areas such as Omaha, Douglas County, and Lincoln. It’s readily available and often associated with local violence in the metro areas.
Marijuana is the most popular drug in Nebraska and in great supply. The production of marijuana has remained level in Nebraska. Many seizures of the drug have netted more than 500 plants.
Underage customers consumed 25.6 percent of all alcohol sold in Nebraska in 2009 alone. The state now ranks fifth for alcohol consumption among youth. In a recent survey, 78 percent of teens from ninth to twelfth grade, admitted to using alcohol.
The popularity of club drugs is growing at a disturbing rate in Nebraska. Most of the ecstasy enters the state from Florida and Arizona. Law enforcement officials in Nebraska are trying to link mid-level distributors of methamphetamine with distribution at rave parties.
