Haley Barbour on Drugs

Republican MS Governor


Reduced number of crystal methamphetamine labs

The Bureau of Narcotics continues to excel, and legislation passed two years ago has greatly reduced the number of crystal methamphetamine labs in the state. Drugs continue to be a major problem, and most crime is drug-related, but you are doing things t combat it. I ask you to increase the number of narcotics agents by 50, or nearly half. While most policing is done at the local level by police & sheriffs' departments, we need to give them all the support we can to protect our citizens & families.
