Indoor marijuana grows are becoming more prevalent in the New York City area. Some of these indoor grows are highly sophisticated and are designed to yield substantial quantities of high potency marijuana. Most of the marijuana entering the New York City area, and some upstate regions, is of Mexican origin, smuggled primarily by auto/truck transport from the Southwestern United States.
Much of the methamphetamine seen in NYC was produced by Mexico and/or California based Mexican meth trafficking organizations. The New York State Intelligence Center reported 12 meth laboratory seizures/incidents in New York in 2007, down from 36 laboratory seizures/incidents reported in 2006.
During March 2007, eleven individuals in New York and Colombia were arrested for their participation in one of the largest Colombian heroin trafficking organizations in the United States. DEA estimates that from mid-2006 to the present, the organization was responsible for shipping more than 250 kilograms of heroin from Colombia to the U.S. During 2007, the New York area experienced a fluctuation in cocaine prices and at times, limited cocaine availability. Colombian and Mexican drug trafficking organizations are the primary transporters and distributors of wholesale amounts of cocaine in New York. These traffickers smuggle cocaine to New York in multi-kilogram shipments via tractor-trailers, containerized cargo, and mail services and then distribute the cocaine in smaller amounts through many networks in the metropolitan area. New York City has long been home to numerous drug trafficking organizations. The city’s large, diverse, multi-class population creates a demand that these organizations are more than willing to serve. New York City also acts as the source for organizations that smuggle drugs to other East Coast destinations and to Canada and Europe.
