There have been increasing incidents of LSD distribution and abuse, as well as incidents of Rohypnol and Ketamine appearing in nightclubs in those communities along the Atlantic coast and upstate. South Carolina was once considered a “consumer state” rather than a “source state” for illegal drugs. South Carolina was increasingly documented as a transshipment corridor for all manner of illicit drugs and drug currency. However, intelligence information reveals that the state is becoming a distribution point for drugs smuggled from the California, Florida, Georgia, New York, Texas, and Mexico.
During 2006, South Carolina passed legislation to curb indiscriminate access to over-the-counter cold and allergy medications containing pseudo ephedrine to clandestine laboratory operators and their associates, as a means to halt manufacture in their respective states.
Ecstasy is readily available in several cities in South Carolina, predominantly in the areas of Greenville and Columbia, and those cities along the Atlantic coast. During the past year, there has been a significant increase in Ecstasy distribution throughout the state with traffickers based out of Columbia distributing a significant portion of the Ecstasy sold. Meth is a constant threat in the state of South Carolina; however, meth production and abuse has shown a steady decrease over the past two years throughout South Carolina from 2005 to 2007. Cocaine and crack cocaine continue to be among the most widely abused drugs throughout the state of South Carolina.
