Heroin Use Not Widespread in Idaho

Mehdi Alani

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Heroin use is increasing across America but doesn’t appear to be widespread in Idaho, accounting for only about 1 percent of all drug arrests in the state. However, Idaho State Police report a significant increase in heroin arrests — a 60 percent jump from 2011 to 2012, as the numbers of arrests rose from 75 to 120 in just one year. Heroin surpassed cocaine in 2012, making up 1.1 percent of all drug arrests, according to a study by the Idaho Statistical Analysis Center. ISP seized 348.4 grams in 2012, down from 496.7 grams in 2011. The average age of those arrested was between 27 and 28. That’s a younger trend then in the previous year when arrestees averaged older than 30.
