Since Hawaii is located in the Western part of the United States, it has a tendency to have a higher population of Crystal Meth use. The problem has escalated into one of the top threats of drugs in the state for both addiction and the cause of much criminal activity. The drug was first brought into the state from Asia almost 35 years ago. Today the supply of the Crystal Meth in Hawaii is imported from West Coast states such as California, Oregon, Arizona and parts of Mexico. The use of crystal meth in Hawaii has been blamed for many domestic violence and child abuse cases as well as property theft.
It can be easily stated that Methamphetamine use in Hawaii is worse than any other state. A majority of the existing "Ice", "tina" or as the islanders say - "batu" (a crystaline, very pure form of Methamphetamine) on the island has been smuggled in by mainlanders. A honolulu Newspaper entitled The Advisor states that; "40 percent of people arrested by police in Honolulu tested positive for methamphetamine use, no other city came close to 30 percent." The Advisor also states that 44 percent of homocides, and 90 percent of child abuses cases across the islands have been linked to Crystal Meth abuse. According to state statistics, 90 percent of the inmate population in Hawaii are drug users, while only 6 percent of these in mates recieve treatment in the pennetentary. Officials state that Methamphetamine abuse has been an issue in Hawaii since the early '70s, although it became a much larger problem in the 1990s. More residents admit themselves into a rehabilitation center for Crystal Meth each day, than are admitted for alcohol alone.
