Texas Drug Rehab
Marijuana remains readily available and is considered the most widely used illegal drug throughout the State of Texas. Marijuana loads seized from private vehicles and semi-tractor trailers range from 230 to 3,636 kilograms. Multi-pound and multi-ton marijuana seizures occur at all transportation terminals, U. S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection checkpoints, and local courier service locations. The volume of illicit drugs transported through Texas by land, sea, and air is immense. Tons of drugs pass through Texas and are delivered for local consumption.
Current investigations indicate that illegal use of hydrocodone products and pseudoephedrine continues to be a problem in Texas. The most common methods of getting illegal pharmaceutical controlled substances continue to be illegal and indiscriminate prescribing and "doctor shopping." Hydrocodone, alprazolam (Xanex), products continue to comprise the majority of prescription controlled drugs abused in North Texas.
Throughout the metropolitan areas of Dallas and Fort Worth, crack cocaine remains popular and easily attainable. The Dallas metropolitan area serves as the primary distribution point for crack to outlying areas in North Texas as well as the states of Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Crack is readily available throughout the Houston Division. Mexican black tar heroin remains the primary heroin threat in north Texas. Heroin is readily available throughout north Texas. Based on intelligence, the greater Dallas Fort Worth area is a distribution point for heroin shipped to the Eastern, Southeastern, and Midwestern United States.
The availability of both Mexican meth and locally produced meth in the Houston Division is increasing. Mexican meth is the primary type found in the Division. It is transported in multi-pound quantities directly from Mexico or from California. From Houston, meth is also distributed to the mid west and the east coast. In Houston, ICE (crystallized Methamphetamine) is being sold in local clubs and is also being offered by Mexican traffickers. Domestically produced meth continues to be manufactured by gangs and independent producers in small batches using pseudoephedrine, anhydrous ammonia, red phosphorous, iodine, lithium batteries, or muriatic acid. There are numerous labs operating in East Texas, Corpus Christi, and Austin. Most of these labs are small, mobile pseudoephedrine labs that produce small amounts for distribution in the local area.
