The Sale and Distribution of Heroin in America: who brings the white poison to American homes?

Today there is a rapid increase in the number of Americans who use heroin. The problem looms large. For example, the people of Iowa and New Hampshire are seriously concerned about the spread of heroin in their States, despite the fact that these regions in terms of drug consumption are considered to be rather prosperous in contrast to New York, California, Illinois and Florida. However, the situation is that heroin addiction, especially among young people, is growing in menacing proportions.

Let us show some statistical data which will more accurately picture the extent of the problem. In 2013, 69 million Americans over the age of 12 first tried heroin. From 2012 to 2013, the number of heroin users in the U.S. increased by 53%. If earlier from a heroin overdose died mostly adult residents of poor city suburbs or neighborhoods with a predominantly “colored” population. Today the situation is different: the victims of the drug are mainly white teenagers and young people aged up to 35 years – representatives of the middle class. For example, 37% of children from wealthy families of Minnesota regularly use heroin.

The epidemic of heroin dependence is currently capturing the States where the authorities have not previously encountered the problem of drug addiction. The wide distribution of heroin has affected small towns of Indiana, Maine, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Michigan, New Hampshire, Washington, New Jersey, and Vermont. This allows us to conclude that day by day the heroin trade finds new markets. The geographical spread of heroin expands, so the income of the drug mafia is growing respectively.

Heroin is mostly imported to the US from Afghanistan and Mexico. It is an interesting fact that the consumption of heroin inside Mexico is much lower than in the US. In addition to Mexico's heroin US receives it from Colombia and South America. Among the major distributors of heroin are Pakistani, Nigerian and Lebanese gangs. But no less active are the dealers from Mexico, China and India. Method of distribution of heroin is wholesale sales, done by street dealers. The scope of dealer networks is huge.

As noted above, more and more States become heroin users. In this situation, we can only conclude – heroin is gaining territory, despite the US's fight against drugs, it means it is very beneficial to someone.

Today there is a rapid increase in the number of Americans who use heroin. The problem looms large. For example, the people of Iowa and New Hampshire are seriously concerned about the spread of heroin in their States, despite the fact that these regions in terms of drug consumption are considered to be rather prosperous in contrast to New York, California, Illinois and Florida.
