Connecticut’s Drug Culture
Connecticut is a tiny state squeezed into the New England area of the United States. It is best known for being the home to Yale University, as well as having something of an upper-crust or WASPy image. “The Land of Steady Habits” however (that is Connecticut’s nickname) has significant issues regarding drug and alcohol abuse.
Heroin and crack cocaine are the biggest threats to the Connecticut population. Powdered cocaine is on the rise as nearby New York distributors are selling the product at a reduced rate. The purity of heroin is on the rise and is becoming more popular as individuals no longer have to inject the substance. Much of the heroin comes from New York. Overall, a quarter of the Connecticut population from the ages of 18 and 25 have used an illicit drug within the past month.
Drug violence, ever since the 1990s, has been decreasing in Connecticut. Which itself is impressive, considering cities such as New Haven are fairly dangerous. However, as the drug violence drops, the rate of people being admitted for drug treatment in Connecticut increases, as well as the number of deaths from drugs altogether.
The popularity of club drugs has decreased over the years throughout the state. Much of the marijuana in the state comes across the Canadian border, since Connecticut is so near our northern neighbor.
Pharmaceutical drug abuse is on the rise throughout the state, as it disturbingly climbs in popularity throughout the nation.
- Marijuana possession in Connecticut is no laughing matter. A first offense for marijuana possession of any useable amount is a misdemeanor and carries up to 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
- A second offense is a felony and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $3,000 fine. Possession within 1,500 feet of a school is an automatic 2 year minimum sentence.
- Sale of any amount of marijuana is a felony and punishable by up to 7 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. Sale to a minor or sale within 1,500 feet of a school or other public area are felonies and have a 3 year mandatory minimum sentence.
- Possession of paraphernalia within 1,500 feet of a school is a felony with a one-year mandatory minimum sentence.
However, as of 2011, small amounts of marijuana in Connecticut by adults are considered legal. The state introduced decriminalization laws, making it one of several to do so.
