DEA Info For Alaska

Heroin continues to be a problem in Alaska, and is widely available.
Due to its location in relation to the rest of the United States and Canada, Alaska is a transshipment state and a consumer state for controlled substances.

Drug Facts

Producing methamphetamine is relatively inexpensive and its manufacturing directions are easy to obtain. With the rising use of methamphetamine among parents and women, child welfare workers may come in contact with a laboratory as part of their normal activities. A methamphetamine laboratory is an illegal operation that produces methamphetamine. Laboratories can range from large-scale production facilities to the basement of any house to "mobile labs" found in the trunks of cars and hotel rooms. In spite of recent efforts to make producing methamphetamine more difficult, the chemicals needed for manufacturing it and the access to those chemicals cannot be eliminated. Methamphetamine is most often manufactured by streetchemists who lack formal training in handling dangerous chemicals. Laboratories are usually in more rural locations since manufacturing metliamphetamine gives off a strong odor, typically either unusually sweet or a strong odor that smells like auto parts cleaner or ammonia. Two primary concerns exist with the manufacture of methamphetamine. One concern is explosion. Some of the chemicals are highly explosive if mixed improperly, and explosions are dangerous to anyone in the vicinity of the laboratory. However, exposure to the toxic chemicals, typically through ingestion, inhalation, or direct contact, used in methamphetamine production is dangerous in the absence of an explosion, and this is the second area of concern. Excessive amounts of ingredients or equipment are serious cause of concern, and should alert child welfare workers to seek additional assistance before entering the home. To illustrate the waste associated with methamphetamine production, for every pound of methamphetamine produced, approximately 5 to 7 pounds of toxic waste is produced. This waste is often improperly disposed of, contaminating soil and water, and may be found in the yard, garage, or in garbage cans. In addition to noticing the environmental indicators of production, child welfare workers must also be aware of the effects of methamphetamine exposure.
Commercial-grade marijuana prices have remained relatively stable during the past decade, ranging from $400 to $1,000 per pound in Southwest border areas and $700 to $2,000 per pound in the Midwest and Northeast. The national price range for sinsemilla, a higher quality of marijuana, is $900 to $6,000 per pound. BC Bud, a type of marijuana produced in Canada, sells for $5,000 to $8,000 per pound in most major U.S. metropolitan areas. Variables such as buyer/seller relationships, quantities purchased, frequencies of purchase, and purity affect drug prices.
Alcohol use by college students is a factor in 40% of academic problems, 28% of dropouts, and 80% of acts of vandalism. 95% of violent crime on college campuses is alcohol related. 90% of all reported campus rapes involved use of alcohol by the victim or the perpetrator.
In 2006, 16.2 million Americans age 12 and older had taken a prescription pain reliever, tranquilizer, stimulant, or sedative for nonmedical purposes at least once in the year prior to being surveyed. Source: National Survey on Drug Use and Health; http://www.samhsa.gov/. The NIDA-funded 2007 Monitoring the Future Study showed that 2.7% of 8th graders, 7.2% of 10th graders, and 9.6% of 12th graders had abused Vicodin and 1.8% of 8th graders, 3.9% of 10th graders, and 5.2% of 12th graders had abused OxyContin for nonmedical purposes at least once in the year prior to being surveyed.
