Kentucky Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Kentucky brings to mind dreamy images of bluegrass and Appalachia. The state of Kentucky has a population of 4,369,356 people and the capital is Frankfort. Unfortunately, in this vibrant state, drugs pose a serious problem for its residents. In Kentucky, Methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and prescription drugs are the primary concern of law enforcement within Kentucky.

  • While the price of cocaine has increased, it is still available throughout many areas in Kentucky.
  • Heroin is limited throughout the state, although availability has increased in the Louisville area.
  • Methamphetamine continues to be a problem even with a successful operation to close US made meth. Much of the methamphetamine is now being brought in from Mexico. The meth use among teenagers is higher than the national average (12.7 percent compared to 9.1 percent).
  • One of the largest drug problems in Kentucky is in the form of prescription medications.  According to the Attorney General, three people will die today in Kentucky from a prescription drug overdose.
  • MDMA and other club drugs are popular in the high school and college areas.
  • Marijuana is grown within the state as well as trafficked into Kentucky.
  • Kentucky ranks as the third most medicated state, with the drugs of choice being painkillers and narcotics.

The amount of deaths related to drugs in Kentucky is experiencing a disturbing increase as well; 1000 people died from overdoses in Kentucky within a year.

  • As for possessing marijuana in Kentucky, possession of less than 8 ounces is a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a $500 fine.
  • Sale of less than 8 ounces has the exact same penalty. Sale to a minor is a felony and is punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison and a $1,000 to $10,000 fine.
  • If the sale takes place 1,000 yards from a school the punishment is 1 to 5 years in prison and a $1,000 to $10,000 fine.

This all being said, Kentucky still maintains an active hemp industry.
