The Supply of Illicit Substances

The threat in Alabama is the widespread availability and abuse of illegal drugs arriving from outside the state, along with its homegrown marijuana and the increasing danger of the local manufacturing of methamphetamine and designer drugs. Conventional substances such as cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana comprise the bulk of drugs arriving in and shipped throughout the state. Colombian, Mexican and Caribbean Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTOs), regional DTOs, as well as local DTOs and casual or one-time traffickers are responsible for the transportation of these drugs. Additionally, Mexican, Caribbean and regional DTOs have extensive distribution networks within the state of Alabama. Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs are also supplying methamphetamine on a very limited basis through their own distribution network within the state. For quite some time production of local methamphetamine was on the rise, however the state is actively combatting this problem. This is made evident by the fact that the percentage of meth lab seizure incidents throughout the state increased 199% from 2007 to 2009.

The Most Common Illicit Substances

When looking at the most commonly cited substances amongst primary drug treatment admissions throughout the state, there are two illicit narcotics that stand out as having the most impact marijuana and cocaine.


Marijuana is the most common illicit substance that individuals in Alabama seek primary drug treatment for. This is the product from a hemp plant and is not only popular throughout the state, but also the most commonly used illicit substance in the country. It is a gray or green mixture of shredded, dried leaves and flowers from the hemp plant. Cannabis is used in many different ways, brewed as a tea, mixed into food, smoked in a water pipe, rolled into a cigarette, or rolled into a cigar.

The use of this narcotic has both short-term and long-term effects. The short-term effects associated with cannabis include problems with learning and memory, trouble with problem solving and thinking, anxiety, increased heart rate and loss of motor coordination. These problems are actually increased when someone mixes other substances along with cannabis. While the long-term effects are not entirely clear at this point, there is reason to believe that cannabis may serve as a gateway drug (something that will make individuals more likely to abuse other substances in the future.


Cocaine is extracted from coca plant leaves. It is one of the most addictive substances available and a potent brain stimulant. There are two main forms of distribution of cocaine:

Users often inject or snort cocaine, whereas the preferred method for using crack cocaine is to smoke it. Short-term effects include anxiety, irritability, feelings of restlessness, loss of appetite, insomnia, increased blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature, dilated pupils and peripheral blood vessels.

One of the main reasons that cocaine is so addictive is because of its immediate euphoric effects. However, once the high dissipates the user may experience a "coke crash" which includes fatigue, irritability and depression. Because of that crash, long-term users often use more cocaine in order to feel good, because they are unable to do so without relying on the narcotic for help.
