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.

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.

Update:

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.
