Hospitals and substance abuse clinics in the states of New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts, are seeing an increase in addiction to prescription drugs, primarily OxyContin while substance abuse clinics in New Hampshire have indicated an increase in addiction to other prescription drugs, such as fentanyl, Suboxone and methadone.
High grade hydroponic pot from Canada is increasingly available in New Hampshire and is smuggled into the state traveling through its shared border with Canada. A variety of smuggling methods have been encountered including concealment in couriers’ backpacks and hockey-type travel bags, helicopter air drops where the marijuana wrapped in plastic bags is dropped to people waiting on land, and the use of snowmobiles during the winter months.
In March 2001, The New Hampshire House of Representatives, by a vote of 223 to 101, rejected a bill that would have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. Cannabis is also cultivated within New Hampshire, though not as readily in recent years. Because of the rural nature of the state, particularly in the north, potential growing areas abound and most of the outdoor growers have reduced the size of their plots and increased the variety and scope of their concealment efforts. THC content in excess of 22 percent has been seen in the state.
The state of New Hampshire experienced a continued growth in availability of methamphetamine in the past few years; however, availability appears to have stabilized. Cocaine and crack cocaine are readily available at the retail level; kilogram quantities of the drug are encountered with less frequency. In recent years, the seacoast region has experienced a significant increase in availability, due in part to its proximity to source areas in Massachusetts, specifically, the Lowell and Lawrence areas.
