Crystal meth has become a very large problem in North Carolina. Crystal Meth is a form of methamphetamines which comes a variety of appearances from white powder to liquid for injecting or small crystal shape pieces. Typically for injecting Crystal Meth, a user will need to melt the crystals. Some meth users even eat Crystal Meth to obtain their high. It has been extremely difficult for police to regulate Crystal Meth in North Carolina. The growth of Crystal Meth in this state is largely affecting Eastern Coastal cities. Detectives have discovered that most of meth is coming from Mexico by the Sinoloa Drug Cartel, who are illegally carrying the drug in the United States and selling it.
Methamphetamine use is spreading across North Carolina from the west. Some authorities in the western most counties are reporting that Meth has completely replaced Crack-Cocaine as the principal drug threat. From year 1996 to year 1999 rehabilitation admissions in relation to methamphetamine more than doubled, from 57 in 1996 to 135 in 1999. From year 1996 to 2000, the number of federal sentences in Methamphetamine charges nearly quadrupled from 16 in 1996 to 60 in 2000. The production process that is used in North Carolina to create the drug produces anywhere from 5 to 7 pounds of waste for only a pound of Meth. Wholesale distribution of the substance is controlled by residents of the state who smuggle it from Mexico and other south-western states. In some cases it is delivered in packages by UPS or Fed Ex services from primarily Phoenix, Arizona.
