Drug corridor is the name given to various paths in the U.S., generally being coterminal with major highways and interstates, that are major highways for the flow of illicit drugs into, out of, and across the U.S. There is no definitive drug corridor, as many people claim that their city lies in drug corridor (just as many people claim that their city is the "meth capital of the world"). Many sources, however, corroborate that the main arteries of drug flow are East-West across the U.S., North from Mexico, and South from Canada. Most of the marijuana and cocaine imported into the U.S. flow from Latin America across the U.S.-Mexican border[1][2] while many imported synthetic drugs and former designer drugs flow south from Canada.

Trans-American Corridor[edit | edit source]

Inhabitants of the lower Midwest and South, including Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and the Carolinas, generally dub their locales to be part of the main trans-American drug corridor, as well as those of the Southwestern U.S. states such as Arizona, New Mexico and Texas[3]. They claim that The major flow of drugs brought in from the Atlantic coast westward flows through their states, and that they are in the main drug corridor.
