The most common drug abused in the state of Massachusetts is cocaine. The drug is readily available and often smuggled in from out of the state, specifically New York or Mexico. The drug is sold in either powder or crack form. Heroin is also very popular in the state. In fact, it is almost at the same level as cocaine, with the amount of users. There has been a rise in robberies of prescription drugs in Massachusetts, with OxyContin becoming a substitute for heroin. Unlike in other states, the drug cannot be obtained by other means (such as, seeing several doctors), as there is strict legislation to prevent that from happening. Methamphetamine (or meth) is also well used in the state, mostly at ?rave? parties and concerts by those between the ages of 18 and 25. However, there are users in their 30s using the drug as well.
