Mexican drug trafficking organizations dominate the illicit drug market in Oregon. The state serves as a transshipment point for controlled substances smuggled from Mexico to Washington and Canada. Recent trends show the state is also becoming a transshipment point for controlled substances smuggled from Mexico to various states east of Oregon, such as Montana, Minnesota, Illinois, and New York. Marijuana and MDMA (street name Ecstasy) from Canada also transit Oregon en route to other U.S. locations. While methamphetamine is a significant drug threat in Oregon, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and club drugs are of concern. In 2007, drug prices in Oregon for methamphetamine and cocaine doubled due to enforcement operations in the United States and Mexico that disrupted the supply of these drugs. Drug trafficking organizations in Oregon also engage in money laundering, using a variety of methods to legitimize and reposition illicit proceeds.

The drug threat in Oregon has created an influx in the state’s drug rehab population. For those of you who have a loved one who is suffering with drug addiction, here is some helpful advice. Before choosing a drug treatment center, drug rehab center or alcohol rehab center, you should educate yourself about the different types of addiction treatment centers and rehabilitation programs available. There are several types of drug treatment programs. How you are treated usually depends on a number of factors. A treatment center that may work for one person will not necessarily work for another. A drug treatment program needs to be matched to the individual's problems and needs. This is critical in his or her success in re-entering society as a normal, functioning person. In order to be effective, treatment programs should address the individual's multiple needs, not just his or her drug use.

Oregon Drug Use and Drug-Related Crime

  • The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reported 259 drug arrests in Oregon during 2007.
  • According to 2004-2005 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 291,000 (10%) of Oregon citizens (ages 12 or older) reported past month use of an illicit drug.
  • Approximately 910,000 (30.08%) Oregon citizens reported that using marijuana occasionally (once a month) was a “great risk”.
  • Additional 2004-2005 NSDUH results indicate that 88,000 (2.91%) Oregon citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 62,000 (2.05%) reported past year illicit drug dependence.
  • During 2007, there were no incidents of children in Oregon affected by methamphetamine laboratories, as reported by the El Paso Intelligence Center.
  • During 2006, there were 213 total drug-related deaths in Oregon reported by the Oregon State Medical Examiner.
  • During 2006, there were 47,697 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in Oregon. During 2005, there were 47,506 such treatment admissions in the state.
  • According to 2004-2005 NSDUH data, approximately 83,000 (2.75%) Oregon citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.
  • In the state of Oregon it is estimated that there will be around 17,093 DUI's, and 203 deaths due to intoxicated driving this year. Statistics also show that there will be 1,036 deaths related to alcohol abuse, 5,310 tobacco related deaths, and 207 deaths due to illicit drug use.
  • It is believed that there are around 178,591 marijuana users, 29,265 cocaine addicts, and 1,657 heroin addicts living in Oregon. It is also estimated that there are 78,208 people abusing prescription drugs, 7,460 people that use inhalants, and 13,282 people who use hallucinogens.
  • In Oregon, there will be around 22,545 people arrested this year for drug related charges.
  • Cocaine:
    • Cocaine is available throughout Oregon. While the powder form is most prevalent, crack cocaine is found in some urban areas. Mexican traffickers dominate wholesale distribution, transporting the drug from Mexico, California, and other southwestern states. Retail quantities are primarily sold by Mexican drug trafficking organizations, street gangs, prison gangs, and local independent dealers.
  • Heroin:
    • The most common form of heroin encountered in Oregon is Mexican black tar heroin. Mexican drug trafficking organizations primarily control the transportation and distribution of Mexican black tar and brown powdered heroin into and throughout Oregon with Mexican street gangs and outlaw motorcycle gangs involved to a lesser extent. Black tar heroin is produced in Mexico and transported from the Southwest Border states directly to Oregon.
  • Methamphetamine:
    • Methamphetamine abuse, trafficking, and manufacturing occur in Oregon. Methamphetamine is one of the most widely abused controlled substances in the state and availability is high. In the past, powder methamphetamine was most common; however, seizures show a switch to the more addictive and potent form of meth referred to as “ice” or “crystal.”
    • Oregon legislators enacted a number of laws aimed at directly reducing methamphetamine availability and local production. In July 2006, products containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, precursor chemicals used in methamphetamine manufacturing, became Schedule III controlled substances, available only by prescription. In recent years, legislation restricted sales of pseudoephedrine by limiting sales to licensed pharmacies. In addition, pharmacies are required to maintain a log of purchase transactions and keep products behind a pharmacy counter. Reported clandestine laboratory seizures have been declining, and the local drug market has been increasingly supplied with methamphetamine from other southwestern states and Mexico. Mexican drug trafficking organizations dominate the methamphetamine supply in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Club Drugs:
    • MDMA (4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate), Ketamine, and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) are available in varying quantities and are generally abused at social venues in more populated areas and on college campuses. Club drugs enter Oregon from a variety of sources: MDMA from Canada, Ketamine from Mexico, and GHB and LSD from California. Laboratory seizures indicate some local GHB and LSD production. GHB is also obtained from Internet sources. PCP and Psilocybin mushrooms are generally available on and around cities with a college student population.
  • Marijuana:
    • Marijuana, the most abused illegal drug in Oregon, is readily available. Its abuse, cultivation, and trafficking are a significant threat. Medical marijuana initiatives within the state have created additional challenges as local producers use these laws to conceal their illegal activity. Caucasian, Asian, and Mexican drug trafficking organizations are involved in the transportation and distribution of marijuana.
    • Canada and Mexico are source countries for marijuana; however, large quantities are also locally produced. Cultivations range from simple dirt grows to complex hydroponics operations, controlled by Caucasian, Asian, and Mexican drug trafficking organizations. Large indoor and outdoor growing operations have been discovered on private, state, and forest lands, with plants numbering in the thousands. In the last several years, large outdoor grows operated by Mexican drug trafficking organizations have become more prevalent. These groups are actively cultivating cannabis in remote areas, growing thousands of plants yearly. High potency marijuana from Oregon is distributed locally and to other parts of the United States.
  • Pharmaceuticals and Other Drugs:
    • In the United States, prescription drugs are the second most abused drug by youth. The primary methods of diversion of legitimate pharmaceuticals continues to be illegal dispensing and prescribing by physicians, illegal distribution by pharmacists, prescription forgery, doctor shopping, and drug thefts from pharmacies, nursing homes, and hospitals. Pharmacy burglaries are prevalent throughout the state and Diversion Investigators are also encountering pharmaceuticals that have been purchased via the Internet without a doctor's prescription. The abuse and trafficking of oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet, Percodan), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab), and anabolic steroids continues to be a concern, while Methadone use has increased dramatically in Oregon.

Oregon lies on the Pacific Ocean and is bordered by Washington, Idaho, Nevada, and California. The Columbia River forms its northern boundary; the Snake River is its upper eastern boundary. The Cascades Range, with Mount Hood, is in western central Oregon. First sighted by Spanish explorers, it was visited by Francis Drake in 1579 and by James Cook in 1778. The area was inhabited by many Native American peoples when in 1792 Capt. Robert Gray explored the Columbia River, giving the U.S. a claim to the region. The river’s mouth was reached by the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805. The first white settlement was founded at Astoria in 1811 by the fur trader John J. Astor. Settlement of the area accelerated from c. 1843 with mass migration over the Oregon Trail. It was part of the Oregon Territory and was admitted to the Union as the 33rd state in 1859. The state’s economy is dependent on its forests, farms, and livestock. Salmon and shellfish are the bases of the fishing industry. Centers of population, arts, and education are Portland, Eugene, and Medford.
