2015 Heroin Domestic Monitor Program
October 01, 2017
The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Heroin Domestic Monitor Program (HDMP) is a retail-level heroin purchase program that provides data analysis about the geographic source of heroin, along with price, purity, adulterants, and diluents sold at the street-level in 27 U.S. cities. In 2015, a total of 823 qualified exhibits were purchased. Of those exhibits, 600 were classified as Mexican-origin heroin (267 Mexican-South American [MEX-SA], 252 Mexican-Black Tar [MEX/T], 49 Mexican-Brown Powder [MEX/BP], and 32 Mexican [MEX]); 178 heroin exhibits were classified as Inconclusive Origin-South American Processing Method (INC-SA); 42 were classified as South American (SA) heroin; and 3 were classified as Southwest Asian (SWA) heroin. During 2015, for the tenth consecutive year, no Southeast Asian (SEA) heroin exhibits were purchased through the HDMP.
