Substance Abuse in North Carolina
Law enforcement in the state has stepped up their efforts to control drug trafficking through special task forces and a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). However, drugs are still widely available throughout the state. On average, more than 700,000 people in North Carolina, age 12 or older report being addicted to the following substances:
Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance in the United States. It’s estimated about 17 million Americans struggle with an alcohol use disorder. In North Carolina, alcohol abuse accounted for 34 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in 2012.
Like many other states, North Carolina also has a heroin problem. Heroin is synthesized morphine, which comes from the Asian poppy seed plant. "Black Tar Heroin" is heavily trafficked throughout the United States from Mexico. It’s the most potent and widely distributed heroin in the United States. Charlotte is one of the five cities in the nation where black tar heroin is most prominent than in other states.
Meth is also common. Methamphetamine use continues to increase in North Carolina. It is available throughout the state and the trade is growing. Meth is a cheaper alternative than cocaine that produces the same sense of euphoria. Meth labs have significantly increased, in 2013 alone, there were 561 meth lab busts in the state.
Most Commonly Abused Drugs
Many turn to prescription drugs because they are more accessible than illicit drugs. The number of deaths caused by prescription drug overdose is higher than deaths caused by cocaine and heroin combined. There have been over 5,700 overdose deaths in the state since 1999. About 1,000 people died in 2011 from overdose on drugs such as Vicodin, Oxycontin and Valium. Also, acetyl fentanyl, an opiate that mimics heroin, is a new designer drug that is currently infiltrating the state of North Carolina.
Mixing drugs with household items is also on the rise. Synthetic drugs come from man-made chemicals that are sprayed on natural herbs to mimic a "legal" high. K2 and Spice or synthetic marijuana is popular among teens.
Marijuana, including the potent BC Bud variety from Canada, is widely available throughout the state and continues to be the most abused drug among adolescents.
