New Mexico is the fifth largest and least populous state in the U.S. Spanning across 121,590 square miles the landscape varies from deserts and mesas to snow-peaked mountains. The state has a significant U.S. military presence with security agencies conducting testing and research in the area. New Mexico ranks 4th in the nation for crude oil production and 8th in natural gas production.
Due to the sparsely populated border areas makes this state a haven for illegal drug traffickers. Also, illicit drugs are smuggled into New Mexico through El Paso and Juarez. The massive amount of drug trafficking has caused the state to have the 8th highest overdose death rate in the nation. In fact, eight out of ten of the leading causes of death in the state is partially attributed to alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse. Now, let’s look at some of the other drugs that are causing problems in New Mexico.
According to New Jersey Advance Media, more than 2,000 people died from drug overdoses in the state in 2016. It has been said that if you put all of New Jersey’s heroin addicts in one place, it would be the state’s 4th largest city with about 128,000 residents. Of course, this isn’t a possibility, but it gives a little perspective on how many heroin addicts there are in the state today.
Here are some other shocking statistics about the overall drug problems in New Jersey:
