Availability of drugs in U.S

Smuggling of illicit drugs is a highly profitable illegal business in America. Many criminal groups are involved in this profession. Mexico and many other countries are major suppliers of drugs to U.S market. Marijuana, cocaine, Heroine and MDMA are common ranges of illicit drugs. MDMA is a most enriched drug among all illicit drugs.

There are many smuggling groups which are involved in MDMA smuggling. These drugs suppliers produce large amount of the drugs in Canada and other countries and smuggle it into the United States through the Northern Border. National Forensic Laboratory Information System (NFLIS) data states that MDMA business was started in 2005 and its business increased up to 76 percent from 2005 to 2008. According to local law enforcement agencies, MDMA availability is increased from 47.2 percent in 2005 to 51.5 percent in 2009.

Seizure data show that MDMA availability is increasing year by year. Many large stocks are seized from 2004 to 2009 and 114,286 dosage units in 2006 to 387,143 dosage units in 2009 were seized at the Southwest Border. Easy availability of MDMA enabled distributors to expand their customer base.

Therefore, smuggling of these types of drugs is increasing year by year. They are widely available in U.S drug market and many groups are involved in this drugs operation. To stop these activities many law enforcement officials were deployed and with this some major declination was also measured.
