Drugs That are Abused in Ohio
Cocaine, marijuana, club drugs, methamphetamine and heroin are widely abused and available in the state. Drug-related violence, as a result, has increased throughout the state.
Powder and crack cocaine are a big problem in Ohio. Powdered cocaine is often a gateway drug to heroin.
Heroin abuse is also on the rise in Ohio. In many regions of the state, it has reached epidemic proportions. Many heroin users transitioned to the drug after becoming dependent on prescription opioids. The state Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services data estimates that hospital admission and emergency room visits have increased due to heroin use.
Marijuana is locally produced in Ohio. The mild climate and vast rural area has made the trade profitable. Residents can easily obtain the drug in both rural and urban areas.
Locally produced methamphetamine has declined over the past few years since the ban on ephedrine products. However, methamphetamine is prevalent in the Akron-Canton region.
The use of club drugs, however, has slowly increased in the state, especially in Cleveland, Dayton and Toledo. MDMA (ecstasy) is the most popular drug, especially at colleges and universities, where rave parties are popular. The cost of ecstasy – about 10- 20 dollars a pill – has made it an accessible drug for college students.
As in other states, prescription drug abuse has increased and overdoses and deaths are common. Vicodin, Roxicet, Ultram, Opana, OxyContin and Opana are some of the most popular prescription opioids.
