Cocaine is Not Just a City Problem
Nine men have pleaded guilty in federal court in the past three years to dealing at least 5 kilograms in two small counties in Virginia. One kilogram – which is about 2.2 pounds – is worth more than $26,000 and can be cut and sold to hundreds of users. People have a misconception that you have to go to New York City to see quantities like this, but you don’t. Large quantities of drugs are turning up in suburban and rural communities throughout the US.
Police have found that drug dealers are now choosing to set up shop in rural communities in rural areas, there is likely less competition. Substance abuse and addiction know no geographic bounds and some dealers even admit that rural areas are a safer place to work. The fact is that more people in rural communities are using drugs, and dealings are going to go where there is a need.
