The most commonly abused drug in South Carolina is marijuana. Most of the time, the drug is smuggled from Mexico. As South Carolina is both a distribution point and a transit state, marijuana, and other drugs, is brought into the state and then it is transported to other destinations. Cocaine is also considered a threat in the state, according to the National Substance Abuse Index, both in powder and in crack form. Ecstasy is the main club drug used in the state, although the others are as well, in smaller quantities. Methamphetamine (or meth) use is increasing and is, according to the NSAI, a very large threat to the state. The state also has a problem with the abuse of prescription painkillers, like OxyContin and oxycodone. This is mostly because of the plethora of pain clinics in the state. As a result, more and more users have started to abuse these painkillers, defining a new addiction trait that seems to be on an increase.
