Arrest in Houston are significant, but we must continue the efforts.
In June, 2010, more than 2,200 people have been arrested during a 22-month investigation aimed at stopping a Mexican drug cartel from distriubting narcotics across the U.S. and bringing guns and money back to their countries to continiue their drug smuggling.
The DEA’s Project Deliverance is shutting down many of the these cartels in the U.S. where they are smuggling drugs, including heroin, cocaine and marijuana and distributing them from hubs like Houston to the rest of the US.
The Justice Department says the probe has led to the seizure of $154 million in currency, more than 1,200 pounds of methamphetamine, 2.5 tons of cocaine, more than 1,400 pounds of heroin and 69 tons of marijuana. “Each dollar we take is one they can’t use to support their operations in Mexico,” said Jose Angel Moreno, the U.S. attorney based in Houston.
Cocaine in Houston
In terms of specific drug problems in Houston, cocaine. particularly crack, represents one of the principal drug threats to Houston. Powder cocaine is often abused in Houston raves, nightclubs, and bars. Crack has always been a problem in the 3rd Ward area and many drug seekers cruise the 3rd Ward to buy their crack cocaine. Wholesale crack distributors sometimes sell “cookies,” crack formed into patties that measure approximately 3″ in diameter. Houston has always been a hub for heroin trafficing from Mexico to the rest of Texas and beyond, making heroin easily available in the inner city of Houston. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Houston Field Division reports a slightdecrease in the price of cocaine and that it cocaine is readily available throughout the Houston area. Cocaine prices in Houston, during the second half of 2005, were $400-$650/ounce. An ounce of crack cocaine sold for $325-$550.

Most of the marijuana found in the city is produced in Mexico, although marijuana produced in Colombia, Jamaica, within the city, and from surrounding states is also available. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Houston Field Division reports a slight decrease in the price of cocaine and that it cocaine is readily available throughout the Houston area.

Hydroponic marijuana sold for $3,500/pound and commercial grade marijuana sold for $350-$450/pound in Houston.
Methamphetamine in Houston
Methamphetamine poses an increasing threat to Houston, especially in the northern and central areas. Because of the rural, isolated areas in northern Houston, meth labs are plentiful from Houston to Conroe, even with the attention that law inforcement has given to searching out these home-labs. Methamphetamine is not only seen in the gay community in Houston, but also in the rural areas surrounding the city, with increasing criminal activities being reported as a result. Crystal meth is also being reported in the Black community in Houston. Former cocaineinjectors report that methamphetamine is easy to obtain, less expensive and the “high” lasts longer than cocaine. During the second half of 2005, methamphetamine sold for $500-850/ounce and crystal methamphetamine sold for $700-$1,200/ounce in Houston.
Club Drugs – MDMA, LSD, ketamine, and GHB pose an increasing threat to Houston. Middle class suburban teenagers and young adults typically abuse club drugs.The majority of the MDMA available in the Houston Division continues to originate in Europe, specifically from Belgium and the Netherlands. The availability and popularity of MDMA is increasing in the area. Other club drugs readily available in Houston include Rohypnol, Ketamine, GHB, LSD, and PCP.
Diverted Pharmaceuticals – During 2002, OxyContin was the most frequently abused diverted pharmaceutical in Houston. Hydrocodone, hydromorphone, and benzodiazepines are also diverted in Houston, but to a lesser extent. The most commonly abused pharmaceutical drugs in Houston continue to be Hydrocodone, Promethazine with Codeine and other Codeine cough syrups and Benzodiazepines (mostly Alprazolam). In the Houston area, the use of OxyContin and hydrocodone is increasing, which is creating an increased demand for detoxification and methadone treatment. Intelligence indicates that Alprazolam sold for $2-$4/pill and anabolic steroids sold for $1-$3/tablet in Houston during the second half of 2005.
