North Dakota: Legendary. Follow the trail of legends
Methamphetamine


Methamphetamine (meth) is a major concern for North Dakota's citizens and law enforcement because it is known to induce violent, erratic behavior in users. That behavior puts the community and law enforcement at risk.

Meth laboratories contain extremely dangerous substances and pose significant health hazards to those who come in contact with these sites, including the general public and law enforcement agents who are often the first responders to a clandestine lab scene. These sites are so toxic that experts are required to be called upon to properly dispose of the chemicals found according to EPA specifications and standards.

Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies are deeply committed to the elimination of methamphetamine and other dangerous drugs in North Dakota, and have been working together on task forces throughout the state.

Educating the community about the hazards of meth is critical to our ability to successfully address methamphetamine issues in our state. The BCI is available to visit with community groups, students, and professional associations. In addition, copies of brochures and tapes regarding the hazards of methamphetamine are available through the BCI.

To request speakers or request information, contact the BCI at (701) 328-5500 or bciinfo@nd.gov.
