Drug Rehab Oklahoma (cont..)
Crystal methamphetamine and crack cocaine are the most significant problem in Oklahoma. Interstates 40, 44, and 35 are the main means of transportation for drug trafficking across the state. Oklahoma serves as a transshipment point for drugs that are being transported to the eastern side of the United States.
Between 2004 and 2006, approximately 6,079 individuals were admitted to Oklahoma drug rehab programs for cocaine abuse and addiction. Cocaine makes its way into Oklahoma via commercial airlines and land vehicles from Texas and Mexico. Usually the cocaine is brought into the state, converted into crack cocaine, and then distributed by Mexican and African American drug traffickers to larger cities in Texas. In 2006, federal agencies seized approximately 88 kilograms of cocaine in Oklahoma.
