›› Alabama: Drug Climate

There is widespread use of illicit drugs originating from out of state, along with homegrown marijuana and increasingly the local manufacture of both meth and designer drugs.

Illegal drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana still account for the bulk of drugs flowing into Alabama . Drugs are trafficked into Alabama via Colombian, Mexican, and Caribbean Drug Trafficking Groups along with regional and local criminal organizations. Mexican, Caribbean and regional criminal organizations have been found to operate extensive distribution networks within Alabama . On a smaller scale Motorcycle Gangs are also supplying meth through their own networks in the state. The incidence of local Clandestine Meth Labs is increasing.
