Virginia has a significant problem with illicit drugs. Cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana are most commonly abused in Virginia. Crack cocaine is abundant in the cities, particularly in Richmond, Roanoke and the Tidewater area. Heroin is widely available in the cities, but less prevalent in the rural portions of the state. In the Richmond area, heroin abuse is not only an inner city phenomenon, but has gained a foothold among the middle class from the suburbs.
Methamphetamine is the drug of choice in towns like Harrisonburg and Staunton – where the population lives in rural areas and has little education and high unemployment. Methamphetamine is a drug popular with college students in the Richmond area.
Club drugs like MDMA (ecstasy), GHB, LSD, PCP and ketamine are on the rise in Virginia. These drugs are popular in communities with college students. As in other states, the abuse of prescription pain medications is rising.
