Working to Stop the METH Epidemic in Deschutes County, Oregon


How is Meth Distributed?

Methamphetamine manufactured in Mexico is distributed by the same groups that are responsible for the distribution of other drugs of abuse in the United States, including heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. Drugs are smuggled across the border in cars and trucks, and transported throughout the United States in a well established distribution system.  As the meth reaches the consumer, it is often adulterated or combined with many substances and sold in small quantities to other street level consumers.   Meth is also sometimes found in other street drugs such as marijuana and ecstasy.
