Fighting the Growing Problem of Meth

State lawmakers are joining forces with drug enforcement officials and community leaders to fight a growing meth problem in Wisconsin.

For the last couple of years, meth labs have been a growing concern in western and northern parts of the state. State lawmakers want to crack down on the spread of meth labs, its use and sales.

That's why at the attorney general's summit on methamphetamines Tuesday, they announced they're teaming up with law enforcement.

Wisconsin law enforcement busted 90 meth labs last year, compared to only 8 in 1999. State officials are hoping to find a way to put an end to wipe out those labs completely.
