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.
