George Nethercutt on Drugs

Former Republican Rep (WA-5); 2004 former Senate challenger


Fight against Methamphetamine is working

Methamphetamine is becoming the single most dangerous drug in the United States. Our increased efforts to fight meth over the last few years are yielding results. Prosecutions and convictions are increasing, and the number of reported labs is decreasing. This is a positive sign that our effort to stop the spread of meth in our communities is having some success.
