What you should know

In North Dakota the primary concern is alcohol abuse. Secondarily, the trafficking and use of meth is a threat. No single drug organization dominates meth distribution, but Mexican poly-drug organizations do bring in meth via private vehicles, trains and buses. The Mexican organizations also are the primary traffickers of marijuana, transporting small quantities via private vehicles and commercial mail carriers.

Compared to other states

  • Illicit drugs overall – low for those 18 and older
  • Alcohol – among the highest for those 18-25, average for those 26 and older
  • Pharmaceuticals – low for those 18 and older
  • Cocaine – low for those 18 and older
  • Marijuana – low for those 18 and older

A closer look


A very significant problem.


One of the drugs of choice, increasing dramatically. Canadian drug organizations from Vancouver and Manitoba bring BC Bud and hydroponically grown marijuana into North Dakota. But the bulk of the Canadian marijuana is transported to areas outside of the state. Local cultivation is on a small scale.


A two-fold threat. First, Mexican organizations based in California and Washington are producing large quantities of meth, then transporting and distributing it throughout North Dakota. Second, the production of meth within the state has begun to increase.


Not a significant threat. Meth use has surpassed cocaine use.


Somewhat of an issue. Sources are the illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping,” forged prescriptions and the internet.


Not a significant problem. Almost all of the heroin encountered in North Dakota, mainly in Fargo, is black tar heroin from Mexico.

Club drugs

Very limited. But club drugs are entering the Fargo area in small quantities.
