An analysis conducted by the Free Beacon, based on publicly available data, shows that meth-associated overdose deaths rose more than percent between —the trough of the last meth crisis—and Yes, Meth is Back Many Americans think of meth as a thing of the past, an earlys craze that gave way to the current opioid epidemic.
Indeed, the number of meth overdose deaths began to spike inrising continuously until This prompted action by Congress and state legislaturesleading to a reduction in meth overdose deaths over the next three years. Legislation targeted the supply of precursors, primarily the cold medication Sudafed.
The results are striking: Data show that a huge increase in the amount of meth in the United States. DEA field offices confirm the trend: This indicates that home production remains low, likely due to laws prohibiting buying Sudafed in bulk.
Data obtained by the Free Beacon from U. Statistics from both the U. They can produce it very cheaply. From there, it spreads into the border states, which helps to explain why overdose deaths and NFLIS samples both concentrate in the southwest.
Most professionals to whom the Free Beacon spoke said there was an obvious reason: Focus on opioids is warranted: However, while illegal opioids may be deadlier than meth, they may also be less common. NFLIS data show that samples of methamphetamine have routinely outpaced samples of heroin the most commonly identified opioid since at least Meth has even begun to outpace the number of all opioids seen by NFLIS — including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioids like oxycodone.
NFLIS data only show drugs examined by forensic laboratories; the high rate of opioid prescription by medical practitioners suggests there are still more licitly prescribed opioids than meth in the United States overall.
The same trend is true at the border: What Is to Be Done? What can be done to stem the rising tide? Interventions in earlier meth crises have generally focused on cutting the supply of precursor chemicals, the efficacy of which is backed by multiple studies.
The Mexican government has banned some of the precursors Mexican labs use to synthesize phenylpropanone, a key component of their super-pure meth. But there are other possible syntheses of P2P, the precursors to which remain imperfectly regulated —the DEA expects that Mexican drug cartels will swiftly adapt.
Reducing demand, providing medical and social support to meth users, and educating potential users as to the threats of consumption are also key components of getting this crisis under control. At the same time, law enforcement has a role to play.
Williamson, the Special Agent in Charge of the El Paso Field Divisionsaid that his office has focused its investigations on the Sinaloa cartel, which produces much of the Mexican meth.
