Here’s the headline on a press release just in from U.S. Sen. Patty Murray‘s office:
Murray Provides $800,000 to Establish a National Meth Center in Pierce County
Does this make you glad?
By building a national meth center in Washington state, we have the opportunity to use our expertise and experience to provide a helping hand to communities throughout the nation. A national meth center in Pierce County would provide training, education, prevention, and treatment resources all in one facility. It would elevate the fight against meth within our state’s borders and export knowledge and support throughout the country.
Any help in beating the meth scourge is welcome. But being known as the home of the national meth center isn’t exactly great buzz.
