Utah is ranked seventh in the U.S. for prescription drug overdoses, which cause more deaths in the Beehive State than firearms and motor vehicle accidents. The majority of overdose deaths are caused by opioids including oxycodone, hydrocodone, and morphine. Heroin use is also on the rise and contributing to overdose death rates, since heroin is often easier to obtain and less costly than painkillers.
Most illicit substances are trafficked into Utah from Mexico, while marijuana is cultivated and produced in many rural parts of the state. Salt Lake City suffers one of the highest prescription drug abuse rates in the country, and experiences more problems with opioid addiction than any other Utah city.
