Crack cocaine Situation:Cocaine continues to be directly available throughout the state of Rhode Island. The cocaine is transported from South America through Southwest Border States via commercial airlines and motor vehicles with sophisticated hidden hydraulic compartments. Cocaine is also brought to the area of New England from the Mexican border, hidden within shipments of legitimate goods being transported by tractor-trailer. Much of the cocaine is converted into crack for sale at the retail level. Cocaine is distributed mainly by Colombian and Dominican traffickers. The majority of the cocaine purchased in the state of Rhode Island is transported in by local suppliers who travel to the state of New York and return for the distribution of the product.

month. 18% reported that their parents' drinking caused problems, more often reported
for fathers (15.9%) than for mothers (6.7%).
Across all grades, students most frequently indicated they obtained alcohol from their
friends (15.7%). This was especially true among older students. About 6% of students in
each grade reported getting their alcoholic beverages “from parents with their
knowledge.” Among 12th graders (13.4%), the second most common source was “from
an adult friend or relative.”
Almost one-fourth of all students reported using one or more substances (such as
marijuana, inhalants, cocaine, crack, heroin, hallucinogens, or prescription drugs), other
than alcohol or cigarettes, to get high in the past month. The use of substances other than
cigarettes or alcohol within the past 30 days ranged from 14.2% of seventh graders to
35% of 12th graders.
8.6% reported ever having used inhalants; 3% used inhalants in the past 30 days.
Inhalants were the only substance reported more often by younger than by older students
(4% of 7th graders compared with 1.8% of 12th graders) in the past 30 days.
