The Midwestern Governors’ Methamphetamine Summit is underway in Sioux City. Charles Larson, the U-S attorney for Iowa’s northern district, says law enforcement agencies worry about how bad a drug meth is.He says it’s easy to buy, sell, get addicted to, and though Iowans aren’t likely to get addicted to heroin because they know it’s real bad, he wants to let them know meth’s bad, too. Sioux City police chief Joe Frisbie touted the value of a “meth training center” in that city.Frisbie says it helps small town police recognize what’s going on, and also helps task forces with a need to boost a one or two-man department to a bigger one fast. Federal Drug Enforcement Agency administrator Asa Hutchinson says Homeland Security’s helped with the drug problem by putting more officers on our borders. He says investigations must be intelligence-based, not just a random hit along the highway but a specific report that tells cops who’s bringing in the drugs. Sponsored for the fourth year by the Midwest Governors Association, the summit continues through tomorrow.
