Oregon’s geographic location means that it’s a shipment point of many drugs to Washington and Canada. Cocaine is not a huge problem in Oregon. The most commonly abused drugs in Oregon are heroin and methamphetamine. Methamphetamine laboratories exist throughout the state and the drug is available in large amounts.
Ecstasy is the club drug of choice in Oregon, especially on college campuses where rave parties are popular. It is often seized in multi-kilogram amounts. GHB and Ketamine (Special K) are also popular club drugs in the state.
Marijuana is widely available in Oregon. Portland is where most of the marijuana supply is cultivated. In 1999, the legislature approved the use of marijuana for medical use.
