Briefing Paper on Methamphetamines Discusses Tribal Solutions

A briefing paper from the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) discusses tribal initiatives to combat the problem of methamphetamine trafficking and use in tribal communities. Published at NCAI's web site, the paper discusses new anti-meth criminal codes and cooperative agreements between tribes and nearby cities, among other solutions. Contact information for tribal leaders, whose initiatives are discussed, is provided. Titled "Methamphetamines in Indian Country: an American Problem Uniquely Affecting Indian Country," the briefing paper was published in November 30, 2006 and is at NCAI's web site. It was also reprinted in the December 2006 issue of Native American Law Digest.
