We've already confirmed that Mexican drug cartel members are or recently have been in our jails here in Montana. We've also told you that MS-13 operatives, and the big city gangbangers are all moving into Montana. But what about the pill pushers?
VP Pence landed in Billings around noon Wednesday before delivering remarks at Riverside Health Care following a meeting with the HIDTA Task Force. The motorcade carrying VP Pence then traveled to a neighborhood near downtown Billings where the delegation got to meet with some young Montana moms who are recovering from meth addiction. Here is raw video from both events.
Will Pence's visit on Wednesday (6/12/19) help Meth addiction in our state? The quick answer is no. The visit itself won't do anything, which is why I am hoping he lays out an actionable plan that makes sense. This problem isn't just a Montana issue, it's an American epidemic. It has wreaked havoc in my hometown and I would really love to hear a solution that makes sense. Not only have a heard a plan that I think will work, I can't even conceive of one.
