Methamphetamine seizures, survey results, price and purity data, and law enforcement reporting indicate methamphetamine continues to be readily available throughout the United States. Use data remains stable, while treatment admissions increased slightly in 2013. Most of the methamphetamine available in the United States is clandestinely produced in Mexico and smuggled across the SWB. Domestic production continues to occur at much lower
levels than in Mexico, and seizures of domestic methamphetamine laboratories have declined, most likely due to the wide availability of high-purity, high-potency Mexican methamphetamine and the passage of the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act (CMEA).
