Michigan Drug Addiction
Cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and MDMA are the primary drug threats in the state of Michigan. Mexican DTOs, with direct ties to the Southwest Border and links to major Colombian cocaine cartels, are responsible for the lion share of the cocaine distributed in Michigan. Cocaine is either resold to local distributors or converted into crack cocaine for street distribution. The availability of South American heroin remains constant throughout Michigan, although Mexican Brown heroin and Mexican black tar heroin is available. Southwest Asian heroin is readily available in the Detroit metropolitan area with New York as the primary point of origin for the influx of Southwest Asian heroin. Importation of Canadian marijuana, often referred to as "B.C. Bud", along with MDMA, by Asian organized crime groups at Michigan's Northern Border ports of entry is encountered with increased frequency. Detroit, Port Huron, and Sault Ste. Marie are quickly becoming transshipment areas to the rest of the United States.
