Opioid Abuse and Drug Trafficking in Montpelier

The opioid epidemic is a major problem in Montpelier and throughout Vermont. Drug overdoses killed 101 Vermonters in 2016 and 104 Vermonters in 2017, and most overdoses involved at least one opioid. Montpelier is the county seat of Washington County, where 11 people suffered a fatal drug overdose in 2017. Heroin and fentanyl are two extremely dangerous opioids which have derailed the lives of Montpelier residents.

According to the Center for Disease Control, using prescription opioids increases the chances that a person will try heroin by 40%, and in 2016, police in Vermont confiscated over 2,000,000 mg of heroin throughout the state. In Vermont, the number of fentanyl overdoses has been rising significantly since 2014. In 2017, fentanyl was the cause of 68 out of the 104 overdose fatalities in Vermont, and the Drug Enforcement Agency expects demand for opioids to increase and cause more fentanyl to be imported into Montpelier. Traffickers are moving other illegal drugs into Montpelier as well. In 2018, Vermont State Police arrested twenty-five people in Washington County for conspiring to distribute cocaine along with heroin.
