Interesting Facts from the Narcotics Division
 
 
Did you know…?

Approximately 60 percent of the world’s illicit drugs are consumed in the United States, which comprises only 5 percent of the world’s population.
 
The street value of illicit drugs seized by the Los Angeles Police Department during the past four years exceeds $3 billion.
 
Approximately 25,070 adult narcotics-related arrests were made during 2002 by the Los Angeles Police Department.
 
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Narcotics Division served 463 narcotics-related search warrants in 2002.
 
“Club drugs” consisting of synthetic stimulants such as MDMA or “ecstasy” and its derivatives, depressants such as GHB, ketamine, and rohypnol, and hallucinogens such as LSD, psilocybin, and peyote are becoming increasingly popular among American youth.  The primary source of club drugs are raves and dance clubs, which are often promoted as “alcohol free.” This may lead to parents’ perception that raves are safe for their children to attend. The wide range of drugs available at raves and parties promulgates poly drug use, which significantly increases the hazards of illicit drug use. 
 
Between 1998 and 2001, reported use of MDMA rose substantially among ten to twelfth graders.  In addition to providing an outlet for the distribution of a variety of club drugs, the rave culture provides trafficking organizations and independent profiteers with an opportunity to introduce and market a plethora of new drugs to a new group of users.
 
Clandestine methamphetamine labs located in Southern California account for 40 to 45 percent of the methamphetamine produced in the United States.  The environmental hazards associated with these clandestine labs are significant.  Nearly one-third of the labs interdicted by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Lab Squad posed such significant environmental hazards that they were considered to be toxic waste dumps. Approximately 80 percent of the clandestine labs seized were in residential areas, significantly increasing the potential for chemical contamination of residents in the immediate area.  In approximately 25 percent of the labs seized by the LAPD, children are present at the location. 

You can report illicit drug activity using the Mayor’s Anti-Drug Hotline (1-800-662-2878)
