Strategic Drug Threat Developments

The distribution and abuse of cocaine pose the greatest drug threat to the Ohio High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) region. Heroin is expected to overtake cocaine as the greatest drug threat in the near term because of the increasing availability and abuse of Mexican heroin. Marijuana and controlled prescription drugs (CPDs) are widely available throughout the HIDTA region, while the availability of MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, also known as ecstasy) and methamphetamine varies.

The following are significant strategic drug threat developments in the Ohio HIDTA region:

a. Smurfing is the practice of having multiple individuals buy pseudoephedrine at or below the legal limit from various locations.

b. Death certificates are used in the United States for administrative and public health purposes. The registration processes remain labor intensive and employ disparate and limited automated procedures. Manual certificate preparation, including the personal delivery of records to physicians for signature, and labor-intensive processing of paper records locally and at State Offices of Vital Records all contribute to slowing registration and delaying the availability of death data.
