Meth is one of the worst threats to ever visit our community. Fires, explosions and contaminated waste from meth
labs pose serious safety risks. Addicts so consumed by the drug that they can't function place a drain on our economy,
law enforcement, health care, treatment and social services system. Children who are neglected by their meth using parents
are flooding our child welfare system and are impacting schools and day care centers. Retailers who constantly
have to struggle with theft prevention of meth inredients as well as farmers who have their anhydrous stolen by paranoid and
potentialy violent criminals are all feeling the impact of meth.
To stop it, we need every sector of the community to get involved in education, prevention, intervention, and legislation.
