The state of Maine has over 1,328,188 residents and the capitol is Augusta. Maine is best known for its scenic New England landscapes as well as its thriving fishing culture, especially lobsters. Maine is also home to a formidable drug culture, as well.
39 percent of the population of Maine 18 to 25 used marijuana within the past year; that's nearly half of that population. Marijuana was one of the top reasons people were admitted to treatment in Maine; alcohol, heroin and Oxycontin abuse were other popular reasons.
Cocaine and heroin are the real areas of concern for the state of Maine. Cocaine is easily accessible all throughout the state as well as high quality heroin. Interstate 95 is a very easy way for drug traffickers to get there product all over the state. With the 225 miles of coastline and close to 3,500 miles of shoreline in Maine, the traffickers are finding a variety of ways to get their products to their customers.
Methamphetamine has been a slow-rising problem but has not reached a level of any real concern; only 611 people were admitted for treatment for it in Maine.
"Bath salts," which are like cocaine, have been growing in popularity and influence in Maine as well. They are designer drugs which can cause extremely violent reactions in users.
The police department of Bangor, Maine had to respond to 400 bath salt-related incidents at one point. This drug can be ordered over the internet or purchased at stores.
Marijuana is still number one in consumption and distribution. It can be found all over the state of Maine and with the Canadian border nearby it is being smuggled into Maine for its higher quality.
As for alcohol abuse, recently this has dropped among Maine teenagers, an uplifting fact. But as for Maine adults, or at least the demographic of those between 18 and 25, the number is troubling: about half that population regularly binge drinks.
