Methamphetamine overview in Ohio
Meth abuse poses another significant drug threat throughout the state of Ohio, mainly in southwesternpart of Ohio. According to ODADAS, the number of amphetamine-related addiction treatment admissions including those for meth increased from 160 in 2000 to 217 in 2001. Federal, state, and local law enforcement reporting confirms that meth abuse is spreading from southwestern part of Ohio to urban areas in the northeastern part of Ohio.
Locally produced meth is not produced in quantities large enough to support wholesale distribution. Local independent producers distribute the drug at the retail level. Limited law enforcement reporting reveals that outlaw motorcycle gangs also may be distributing locally produced meth at the retail level. Mexican criminal groups are the main wholesale dealers of meth produced in Mexico, California, and southwestern states. They generally sell wholesale quantities to local independent distributors for retail distribution.
Meth treatment admissions per 100,000 citizens (2003): 2
While cocaine is the biggest drug menace in Ohio, methamphetamine abuse and manufacture are increasing. During 2004, some 358 residents sought treatment for meth addiction, or approximately 0.8% of all individuals seeking drug abuse treatment. This is a steady raise from 2003, when 282 individuals sought treatment for meth abuse, and from 2000, when only 97 did.
Local manufacture of meth is also increasing. During 2004, 286 meth labs were seized by DEA, state and local authorities, in comparison to 97 in 2002 and only 29 in 2000.
Poisoning the poison (Meth cut with fentanyl)
Opioids overdoses have seized national attention. Headlines about overdose deaths are seen daily in the media. The introduction of fentanyl and its stronger cousin Carfentanil has been a huge factor in the spike in overdoes deaths in Ohio and the areas nearby.
Most media on the subject tells us that it is Mexican sourced Heroin that is killing many of our youth. It is cut with these very dangerous drugs.
What doesn’t get a lot of play is Meth overdoses have been on the rise as well.
Cincinnati.com reporter, reported recently that the Cincinnati area is following national trends with Meth use increasing along with fatal overdoses from Meth.
More and more imported Mexican Meth is being found coming into the area and it is evidently being cut with Fentanyl and its more powerful cousin carfentanil.
The Government is allocating resources to address this problem but families need to be involved and aware.
This is yet another wake up call for parents and family members to be alert for indicators of drug abuse with their teenagers.

Mexican Cartel in Ohio
Mexican cartels follow a simple formula for marketing Meth and other drugs. They flood an area with cheap Meth and create more addicts and then follow up by supplying the targeted area with their product.
The National Drug Intelligence Center reported on the Cartel activity in Ohio as far back as 2001. https://www.justice.gov/archive/ndic/pubs/659/meth.htm. The Cartel deals a variety of illegal drugs including Meth and marijuana.
According to the director of the Director of National Institute of Drug Abuse marijuana is a gateway drug for Meth and other drugs. The legalization movement will likely lead to more Meth usage over time.
More updates coming up soon.
The Combat Meth Act, signed by President Bush on March 9, 2006, gives minimum standards for retailers across the nation that sell substances containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. The law limits sales to 3.6 grams of the base ingredient (the pure ephedrine or pseudoephedrine) daily and 9 grams per month, and requires that buyers provide identification and sign a sales log. Also, sellers must keep these substances behind the counter or in a locked case and register on-line with the U.S. Attorney General. Additionally to the federal minimums, Ohio state law requires that buyers of these substances be at least 18 years old.
