Two-Part Radio Series on Methamphetamine in Nevada

I did KNPR’s State of Nevada show this morning on methamphetamine addiction. By far the most powerful speaker was a recovering meth user, whom I respect for his guts to go on the air and talk about what he has been through and continues to go through.

This was the first of a two part series that KNPR is doing. Tomorrow’s (Tuesday) show focuses on control of methamphetamine precursor chemicals. Here is the link. I will be tuning in to hear Part II, and recommend it to all of you RBCers who are interested in drug policy.
