Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in Massachusetts
Due to Massachusetts’ closeness to New York City, it is a prime location for the transshipment of illegal drugs and pharmaceuticals. The state is used as a transportation highway to New England, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine for heroin. Cocaine is abused quite frequently and is often linked to the violent crimes committed in Massachusetts. MDMA, pharmaceutical drugs, and other illicit drugs are also becoming more widely available throughout the state. These drugs have a tendency to show up in Massachusetts’ nightlife/metropolis areas.
