John Hoeven on Drugs
Republican Jr Senator; previously Governor
We are taking up the fight on a number of fronts. We are increasing resources for the Bureau of Criminal Investigation's meth and narcotics enforcement efforts. We are also increasing resources for Drug Court, which can reclaim lives. To fight substance abuse on the elementary and high school levels, we are devoting substantial funding under the federal Safe and Drug Free Schools program.
And, to deal with the growing prison population because of meth, we are establishing a new women's prison on the campus of the state hospital in Jamestown. This facility will result in making prison beds available in our penitentiary system for both men & women offenders--and save taxpayers $22 million.
We must take the makers and dealers off the street, and we must provide law enforcement the resources to get the job done.
