Drugs and Life in Arkansas
Arkansas has a transportation infrastructure, believe it or not, that makes it ideally suited for drug trafficking. Combine that with its nearness to Mexico and you have a recipe for drug disaster. Interstate 44, for example, runs from Arkansas all the way through California.
There are many documented cases of federal and state authorities intercepting drug traffic in Arkansas; in February 2003, for example, 35 pounds of marijuana were seized from a truck that otherwise contained auto parts. The driver was transporting the drugs through Arkansas on his way to Michigan.
As for drug and alcohol abuse in Arkansas, 15.3% of people between the ages of 18 and 25 had used marijuana in some form during the past month.
26 percent of that same Arkansas demographic had used the drug within the past year. Marijuana is the most widespread drug used throughout the country and Arkansas appears to be no exception to that rule.
But there are punishments to be paid for such illicit drug use in Arkansas. First time possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor in the state of Arkansas and can be punished by up to 1 year in prison and a $1,000 fine. For first time offenders, many are opting for probation and treatment, which once completed, discharges the arrest from their record.
Minors convicted for any drug offense will lose their license for up to six months. Sale of marijuana is a felony and any sale done within 1,000 feet of a school or other area where families and children are will increase the length of time one will spend in prison. Any sale over one ounce carries a prison sentence of 4 to 10 years and a $25,000 fine. Any conviction for drug offenses in Arkansas can also carry a one-year suspension of a commercial license.
Interestingly, Arkansas also has an active hemp industry.
It's even scarier to think about the younger generation of Arkansas and the risky behaviors they are engaging in. Over a third of the Arkansas high school population has confessed to using marijuana at some point in their lives.
Also, 9 percent of the Arkansas population between the ages of 12 and 17 has used prescription pills at some point for nonmedical reasons.
