Methamphetamine use in New Mexico is quickly increasing with the help of Mexican smugglers. The Mexico-New Mexico border is covered in desert property; sparsely populated with very limited numbers of barriers that would prevent illegal crossing. This creates an issue which leads to drug trafficking across the United States. In more southern regions of the state, seized Methamphetamine has been up to 99 percent pure, while Meth further north usually tests as low as 80 percent pure. Locals are quickly learning to concoct the drug using everyday household items. In July of 2007, four counties teamed up to create a task force entitled the Mild-Region Methamphetamine Task Force. The task force will be handling Meth related violence issues, along with strategies to address the problem of trafficking.
New Mexico is so relatively close to Mexico it is extremely difficult to stop drug smuggling into the state. For that reason Crystal Meth in New Mexico is trying to be contained by drug treatment and rehab programs. There are currently numerous border wars going on in attempts of lessening the amount of Crystal Meth entering New Mexico. Because of the constant stream of meth into New Mexico from surrounding states, the drug is readily available and cheap. Typically most meth users begin my injecting the drugs, then later turning to smoking it and eventually injecting it with needles. HIV/AIDS are both prevalent disease that are associated with Crystal Meth due to the sharing of dirty or infected needles among users.
