A closer look


Particularly crack, a primary drug of concern in urban areas. Cocaine is moderately available in northern Nevada and readily available throughout southern Nevada. The drug is brought into the state mainly from California via ground transportation. Las Vegas is a transshipment point for distribution across the U.S. African-American street gangs control most of the distribution in state, basing their operations in cheap motel rooms and apartments in larger cities’ impoverished areas.


Most commonly abused drug. Mexican drug organizations bring in the drug from “super labs” operating in Mexico and California. Mexican crystal meth is the most available type. Local meth labs produce only small quantities. The state is a transshipment location for meth distribution nationally.


Easily available. Legal for medicinal purposes and in quantities of one ounce or less, marijuana is available from Mexico, the primary source, and from in-state growers. The Mexican poly-drug organizations transport marijuana mostly from California .


A significant problem.


Prescription fraud on the rise in Las Vegas, Reno. Across the state, sources are the illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping” and internet pharmacies. Oxycodone and hydrocodone products, methadone, ketamine and benzodiazepines are most commonly abused.


Mexican black tar most prevalent. Mexican poly-drug organizations control the trafficking, recruiting Mexican nationals to live in urban regions to distribute the drug mostly in open air markets. Mexican brown heroin is somewhat available in Clark County through Mexican nationals.

Club drugs

Mainly a threat in Las Vegas. Readily available in southern cities, club drugs are only sporadically used in northern urban areas. Trafficking ranges from hand-to-hand sales in clubs and raves to larger sales between locals and out-of-town distributors. MDMA comes mainly from southern California, San Francisco and New York, with Las Vegas a transshipment area. Asian drug trafficking organizations distribute a significant amount of MDMA. Also abused are GHB and LSD.
