Methamphetamine Use And Victimization At A Glance 1st Quarter 2007

Nearly 60 percent of arrestees that were threatened with a gun in the past 12 months tested positive for methamphetamine and 70 percent of arrestees that reported being robbed in the past year tested positive for methamphetamine. These results suggest that methamphetamine use is not only related to the commission of criminal acts, but it is also related to the likelihood of personal victimization.

2009 AARIN Symposium: Drug Markets

During 2008, as part of AARIN data collection interviews collected data on methamphetamine use and drug markets. Some of the findings from the forthcoming special topic report on the Drug Market Addendum illustrate distinct differences in the drug market characteristics of different illicit drugs, and differences in the acquisition habits of demographically different arrestees. Of particular note were the gender differences in which illicit drug was acquired, whether or not it was purchased directly, and the likelihood of a street-level acquisition.
