Arkansas Drug Abuse Statistics At-a-Glance:

The number-one drug affecting people in Arkansas, as in many other states, is cocaine. Also known as “powder” and distributed in other forms such as crack cocaine, this drug is a significant problem because of the relationship to street gang violence, especially in inner-city areas. If you combine the street gang’s movements to non-traditional areas with the availability of crack throughout the state, the result is the spread to many suburban and rural areas in Arkansas.

The distribution and abuse of cocaine are related to violent crimes, and it even goes as far as murder. For that reason, it is still a primary concern to the law officials of Arkansas. Street gangs have played a major part in the spreading of the drug in rural areas of Arkansas.

Methamphetamines are the primary drugs of concern in Arkansas. Both imported (Mexico) and locally produced methamphetamine are a problem the state law enforcements are encountering. The state’s rural landscape provides an ideal setting for the manufacturing of methamphetamines, which is compounded by the ease of acquiring precursor chemicals.

Methamphetamine has become, over the last few years, the most significant drug threat in Arkansas. The state has ranked third when it comes to clandestine meth labs found in the state. The fact that Arkansas is made up of many rural zones makes it easier for the methamphetamine manufacturers.
