Methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana are among the most popular substances that are trafficked through El Paso, and these three substances are most often the reason that residents seek drug addiction treatment.
It’s an epidemic being studied in depth by the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). A $2 million grant was given to the new Vulnerability Issues in Drug Abuse (VIDA) project in March 2012 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The study will look at the drug cartel issue as well as the rise of crystal meth in the drug trade and how both these issues are affecting the Hispanic community in El Paso and Juarez.
