Vermont Drug Information and Drug Trafficking
Vermont drug information shows that marijuana, domestic and imported, is the most widely abused drug in the state. High-purity level heroin is available throughout the state. Cocaine is also a significant problem throughout the state, particularly in urban areas. Law enforcement officials report minimal availability of methamphetamine. Vermont's two interstate highways, I-89 and I-91, terminate at the U.S./Canada border, providing drug traffickers easy access to metropolitan areas in Canada and the United States.
Current drug information revels that cocaine is readily available throughout Vermont and is widely abused by illicit drug users. The drug is available in all quantities from fractional ounces to kilogram quantities. Cocaine traffickers in Vermont, most often Caucasians, obtain the drug from source areas in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York. The cocaine is brought into the state mostly through the use of passenger vehicles; often it is then distributed in bars. Crack cocaine is not widely available in the state, although there is limited availability in the areas of Burlington, Rutland, and Barre. Crack is most often distributed by African-American violators who obtain the drug in New York and Massachusetts.
There is widespread availability of heroin in the state in street/user level quantities. The purity level in the state is quite high, ranging from 55 to 60 percent. A typical heroin distributor in Vermont is a heroin user who distributes the drug in order to support his/her heroin addiction. Heroin is obtained by individuals who travel to source areas in Massachusetts and New York. The most common method of transport of heroin between Vermont and source areas is the use of automobiles.
Amazingly, there is not a significant methamphetamine problem in Vermont. No clandestine methamphetamine laboratories have been seized in Vermont for the past several years; the last one was seized in 1990.
Drug information sources in Vermont share that MDMA (Ecstasy) appears to be widely available in the state, particularly in the Burlington area. Until June 2001, MDMA possession was not a crime under Vermont state statutes. Several thousand tablet seizures of MDMA have been made at the ports of entry in Vermont. The seized MDMA, often from Toronto, Canada or Montreal, Canada was destined to other states in New England. There have not been any reports of widespread availability of other club drugs such as GHB and ketamine. In December 2003, a clandestine MDMA laboratory was seized in Castleton, VT. This was the first clandestine laboratory seized in the state since 1990.
Marijuana is readily available in all areas of Vermont, and it is the drug of choice for illicit drug users. Marijuana is brought into Vermont from the southwestern U.S. through the use of automobiles, campers, and tractor-trailers. Another significant source area for marijuana in the state is Canada.
Drug trafficking in Vermont is often Canadian-based organizations that smuggle high quality hydroponically grown marijuana from Canada across the U.S./Canada border for distribution in Vermont and in transit to Massachusetts, New York, and other states. The marijuana often is carried in backpacks across remote areas between the ports of entry; tractor-trailers containing marijuana loads also transport the drug across the U.S./Canada border.
In addition to marijuana transported to Vermont, marijuana continues to be grown within the state. In the past, local growers maintained large-scale outdoor cultivation operations. However, the current trend of local marijuana cultivation has changed to small outdoor plots which can be difficult to detect. Indoor grows and hydroponic systems are maintained on a small scale.
