Community Action Group Forming to Combat Growing Meth Use

A group of community leaders met to discuss ways to combat the rising rate of methamphetamine abuse across the state. According to the Rapid City Journal, two state bills, Senate Bill 43 and 117, were passed into law in order to help raise awareness and provide funds to combat methamphetamine use. The group is looking to use those funds from the initiatives to help intervene and prevent its use as well as offer treatment to those suffering from meth abuse in the community.
