Arizona's Drug Problem
Arizona’s location in the southwestern U.S. puts the state in a direct path of drug trafficking. It is bordered by New Mexico, Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and California. A significant part of Arizona’s drug traffic comes from Sonora, Mexico which is home to the nation’s most well-established drug cartels.
A large part of Arizona’s border is desert and mountain ranges. This sparsely populated area is ideal for nefarious drug activities. In 2016, this state had the second highest overdose rates in the U.S., totaling more than 20 deaths per 100,000 people. The national average is 14.0 deaths per 100,000 people, according to the CDC. Today, nearly 85 percent of Arizona residents live in counties with high overdose death rates.
Drug trafficking in Arizona is a complex web of cartels smuggling a variety of drugs. They are quite creative when it comes to moving and hiding their products and cash. For instance, commercial package services have been used to ship cash that is hidden inside electrical equipment, books, and other items. State law enforcement is struggling to meet the demands and maintain some level of control over the situation. Each day they discover another clandestine concealment method that the traffickers have concocted.
Statistics provide a detailed look at the overwhelming drug problem in Arizona today:
- Meth: Nearly 6,400 pounds of methamphetamine were seized last year. This is a 294% increase over the past six years. Drug cartels control over 90% of methamphetamine and 80% of the heroin trade in Arizona.
- Alcohol: Alcohol poisoning killed 18.7% per million of Arizona residents over the age of 15. More than 4.5 percent of hospitalizations were related to binge drinking.
- Heroin: Deaths from heroin abuse increased by more than 44 percent in one year alone.
- Opioids: More than six out of ten drug overdose deaths in the state are attributed to opioids. From 2015 to 2016, the number of opioid overdose death increased by 16%.
- Cocaine: More than 2.5% (165,000 people) Arizona residents use cocaine. Among the 12 to 17-year-olds, the average is 1.25% to 1.50% who used cocaine more than once.
- Marijuana: About 43% of high school students said they smoked marijuana more than once.
The goal today is to find ways to reverse Arizona’s growing drug abuse problem. Governor Doug Ducey has taken steps to address the crisis. He recently signed an Executive Order that gives prison inmates who are addicts an opportunity to be treated withVivitrol before leaving prison.This medication blocks addiction. Furthermore, it will help inmates as they continue with treatment following their release. These measures are among many that the state of Arizona has presented in an attempt to save lives.
Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of accidental deaths in Arizona as well as every state in the US. Drug awareness and education organizations are ramping up their efforts to make a difference. Some of these organizations are as follows:
- Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith, and Family
- Drug Free AZ Kids
- Northern Arizona Regional Behavioral Health
- Arizona Crime Prevention Agency
