"Combating methamphetamine production and use starts at home, in our neighborhoods."
- Rep. Ramras

 

(JUNEAU) - Representative Jay Ramras (R-Fairbanks) introduced House Concurrent Resolution 4 today, which encourages the Department of Health and Social Services to take a leadership role in the introduction of a "Meth Watch" program. "Meth Watch" is a voluntary community program that was originally developed in Kansas, and works to educate communities about the negative effects of methamphetamine.

"Combating methamphetamine production and use starts at home, in our neighborhoods," said Representative Ramras. "Our communities must be united in an effort to combat methamphetamine, and 'Meth Watch' will be the vehicle for that unity."

Since the 2001 start of "Meth watch," communities have shown a significant reduction in methamphetamine laboratories, and the unification of grant programs that support education for parents, teachers, and others that work with youth.

"Meth Watch" engages local businesses, law enforcement agencies, schools, and other key partners in reducing the availability of products used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. The program also works to develop awareness in communities, and assists various community organizations in seeking funding from both government and private sources.
