  • Cocaine:
    • Cocaine HCl and crack cocaine are readily available at the retail level; kilogram quantities of the drug are encountered with less frequency. In recent years, the seacoast region has experienced a significant increase in availability, due in part to its proximity to source areas in Massachusetts, specifically, the Lowell and Lawrence areas. Dominican narcotics traffickers dominate the distribution of cocaine HCl in the state and are supplied by associates in New York and Lowell/Lawrence, MA; however cocaine is brought into the region from Florida and the Mexican border. Cocaine and crack cocaine availability and prices have remained constant.
  • Heroin:
    • Heroin remains readily available at the retail level and its use is widespread. Heroin sources of supply are located in Lowell, Lawrence and Lynn, MA.

Canada has also served as a transshipment point for MDMA destined for New Hampshire.
  • Marijuana:
    • Marijuana is readily available throughout New Hampshire. Marijuana is the predominant drug of choice in the state.

S. and other mail services.
    • Cannabis is also cultivated within New Hampshire, though not as readily in recent years. Because of the rural nature of the state, particularly in the north, potential growing areas abound and most of the outdoor growers have reduced the size of their plots and increased the variety and scope of their concealment efforts. THC content in excess of 22 percent has been seen in the state.
    • High grade hydroponic marijuana from Canada is increasingly available in New Hampshire and is smuggled into the state transiting through its shared border with Canada.

One of the New England states, New Hampshire is bordered by Canada and the U.S. states of Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont; the Atlantic Ocean lies to the southeast. The Connecticut River forms its western boundary with Vermont. The White Mountains in its central part contain Mount Washington. The region was inhabited by Algonquian-speaking peoples when the first English people settled near Portsmouth in 1623. The area came under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts in 1641 and became a separate crown colony in 1679. It was the first colony to declare its independence from Britain in 1776. Following the nation’s establishment, the state grew rapidly. Agriculture flourished and manufacturing developed along the rivers. Portsmouth became a major shipbuilding centre. The economy is now based primarily on manufacturing and tourism, although dairy farming and granite quarrying are also important. Because it holds the nation’s earliest presidential primary, it has furnished the first testing ground for many candidacies. Dartmouth and the University of New Hampshire are two of the state’s prominent educational institutions.
