Kennedy v. Mexican Meth

Meth has often been described as the scourge of rural America because of the dangerous effects of this highly addicted drug. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be one of the top issues discussed in Minnesota in 2006.

Minnesota, thanks to Gov. Pawlenty’s leadership, has been able to make it more difficult to obtain meth ingredients at your local supermarket. There is, however, still the problem of meth coming in from labs in Mexico.

Some in Congress say that the U.S. needs to put pressure on Mexico to put a dent in meth production. "We need to have the same energy going after shutting down the importing of meth from Mexico and other countries as we have going after the cold pills," said Rep. Mark Kennedy (R-Minn). "In fact, we have to have greater energy because it's a greater source of supply."
