Houston is a pivotal point for the importation and exportation of a wide variety of drug types. Noted with red arrows, illicit drugs such as methamphetamine, cocaine, low-grade marijuana, heroin, fentanyl, and fentanyl-laced counterfeit pills are transported in bulk quantities into the Houston area from Mexico through South Texas. Once arriving in the Houston area, these large drug loads are broken down into smaller quantities and delivered to locations throughout the nation. Noted with purple arrows, Mexico-based cartels obtain precursor chemicals primarily from China for the fentanyl and methamphetamine they produce. Although Mexico is the main source for fentanyl entering the United States, fentanyl and other synthetic opioids also arrive via mail shipments originating from source countries such as China though to a lesser extent than in the past. Noted with green arrows, domestically-produced high-grade marijuana, marijuana concentrates (THC wax and oil) and THC edibles are diverted from a growing number of states that have legalized marijuana into counties in the Houston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) to meet the very high level of demand for these potent marijuana-based products.
