Bob Taft on Drugs

Republican OH Governor


Enact more laws to fight methamphetamines

A danger is menacing our children. Whatever you call it - meth, ice, or crank - methamphetamines have many street names but a single result - lives destroyed. Law enforcement officials are seizing record amounts of meth, and seeing an alarming surge in the number of labs that produce it. So today, I ask you to join me in enacting laws to fight this illicit drug and to attack these toxic labs. We will not allow this drug to destroy more lives in Ohio!
