Methamphetamine use in the state of Pennsylvania remains relatively low and slowly but surely continues to decrease. Emergency room admissions in regards to Meth abuse dropped from 110 admissions in 1993 to 47 admissions in 1999. Police Department officials are also reporting a decline in the popularity in many metropolitan areas of the state. Most of any Methamphetamine that is available, has been locally produced by Caucasians, along with a number of different criminal groups. Criminal organizations are in control of wholesale distribution for the most part, and most sales typically involve ounce and gram quantities.
However as the late 2000's hit, Crystal Meth use in Pennsylvania took a turn and slowly began to increase. By 2009 the admissions in Pennsylvania Treatment and Rehab were almost 230 up from almost a 70% increase since the early 2000's. In 2013 two dozen individuals were arrested in Pennsylvania for connection with a $7 million Crystal Meth drug circle out of Mexico. Many of these individuals were dealing or trafficking drugs throughout the Eastern part of Pennsylvania. Possession or dealing this drug can cause a range of punishments from $30,000 fines, 90 days in jail to 15 years in jail. Each state has different laws on the punishments of Crystal Meth related charges, however in most states drug trafficking is not taken lightly.
