Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in Mississippi
Mississippi is a prime transshipment location for large quantities of illicit drugs that travel from the Southwest to the rest of the country. Due to the large quantities, law enforcement has had a difficult time trying to control illegal drugs moving into and through Mississippi. Many of these illicit drugs are either transported via highway or by the river ports throughout the state.
Methamphetamine, also called meth, is a very serious problem in Mississippi. The drug is causing a great concern for law enforcement because usage is increasing at an alarming rate. Other than marijuana, cocaine is another drug that takes a major effect on the state. Cocaine is seen throughout the state of Mississippi. MDMA, also known as Ecstasy, is the most prevalent club drug throughout Mississippi. These “club drugs” are primarily abused by middle-to-upper-class young Caucasians in the metropolis area.
