The cost of cocaine jumped by 50 percent in League City, Texas in 2012; an ounce of cocaine that once cost undercover officers $800 now costs them $1,200. Crystal meth, too, has felt the effects of inflation: an ounce that once cost $1,700 is now going for about $2,200. Why? It could be due to the increased law enforcement efforts that have seized shipment after shipment of narcotics, stopping them from coming over the border and into the country.
Is the higher price causing those who are dependent upon the drugs in League City to rethink their addiction and get treatment? Maybe. But more likely, the higher cost of the drugs may be causing an increase in crime, as addicts become desperate to get the substances they need to deal with cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
