Information on Drugs, Alcohol and Interventions in Louisiana
Louisiana’s coastline makes it an ideal area for drug traffickers shipping drugs into the United States. The state’s seaports, highways, and airstrips create a major shipping point for drug traffickers to transport their products. Also, Louisiana’s close proximity to Houston, Texas (a primary drug distribution area) makes it a good destination for drugs that are imported from Mexico.
The primary drug threats in Louisiana are caused by the distribution and abuse of heroin and crack/cocaine. Heroin has been an increasing threat to the nation but in Louisiana, heroin is mainly seen in New Orleans/the Louisiana metropolis areas. Unlike heroin, crack/cocaine is commonly reported in almost all areas of the state. Due to northern and central Louisiana being close to Arkansas, methamphetamine production and abuse are rising.
