PFD offices, state/local law enforcement agencies, and other stakeholders throughout Pennsylvania report persistent increases since 2017 in various indicators that demonstrate availability, such as the total quantity of illicit stimulants seized by law enforcement, identification of seized drugs as illicit stimulants by laboratory analysis, and the presence of illicit stimulants in drug-related overdose deaths.
