Meth is the drug of choice in Hawaii, where it is readily available, with the majority of the methamphetamine converted into ice before his distribution.
In the past several years, ice-related criminality have raised as the drug has increased in popularity and availability. The Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring program in 2001 revealed 38.1% of adult males arrested from January September 2001 tested positive for methamphetamine use. Furthermore, male and female arrestees in Honolulu tested positive for meth at an increased rate than for marijuana (29.8%) and coke (11.2%). Pound quantities of crystal methamphetamine arrive from the southwest regions of the U.S smuggled by couriers and the by private parcel services, such as Fed-ex and DHL.
Local addicted persons can purchase crystal meth from several sources, since ounce distributors are abundant throughout the state of Hawaii. Most of the methamphetamine laboratories seizures in the state are small “conversion” labs. Analysis of seized glassware and chemicals reveal that most of the labs have a capability of manufacturing ounce quantities of ice.
