Florida Substance Abuse Trends Update – Fall 2015

Presented By:
James N. Hall



Event Date: 11-10-2015

Event Description: A drug-by-drug review of substance abuse trends across Florida reveals both progress and new challenges. Reductions in underage drinking and tobacco use reflect significant outcomes of coordinated prevention strategies. Adolescent marijuana use now involves higher potency "wax" or "budder" as well as more intense methods of administration including bongs for "dabbing" or other vaporizing devices. Emerging drugs problems include the newest synthetic cathinone "bath salt" stimulants like "Flakka" or "Mollys" and other Novel Psychoactive Substances. Prescription opioid abuse has been the breeding ground for heroin epidemics in Florida and across the nation. Increased use of fentanyl from clandestine labs as a booster adulterant to street heroin is linked to numerous deaths. Cocaine and methamphetamine use continues at relative stable levels. The not-yet-illegal retail distribution of addictive kratom mimics the sale of "bath salts" prior to their being made illegal in Florida.
