Janet Napolitano on Drugs

Democratic AZ Governor; Designee for Secretary of Homeland Security


Undeniable link between drugs and criminal activity

Given the undeniable link between drugs and criminal activity, it is imperative that Arizona strengthen its efforts to impede drug trafficking and enhance efforts to eliminate drug production. Arizona’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) must remain intact and autonomous to address criminal narcotics issues and our law enforcement must continue to maximize its use of federal programs to obtain the sophisticated investigative and communication equipment needed to fight traffickers.

Teach children about the dangers of all forms of drug use

Q: What is the best way to fight the war on drugs?

A: [In addition to interdiction], county and local law enforcement must receive adequate training and resources to end the spread of methamphetamine production in our neighborhoods and programs that teach children about the dangers of all forms of drug use must remain a priority. Only through the joint efforts of federal, state, and local law enforcement can we hope to make an impact on our State’s drug trade.
