In the News…

Utah Representative John Curtis, along with a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives, introduced the Methamphetamine Response Act that would declare methamphetamine an emerging drug threat and require the Office of National Drug Control Policy to develop a plan to prevent meth from becoming a public health crisis. 

In a news release, Representative Curtis said, “Over the last decade, methamphetamine addiction and fatalities have skyrocketed across the United States—especially in rural areas like the ones I am proud to represent. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the problem by spreading resources thinly and making it more difficult to connect with individuals in need of support. 

“To combat this threat, I am proud to co-lead the bipartisan Methamphetamine Response Act, which channels the necessary resources at the highest levels of government to develop and implement a nationwide plan to prevent this dangerous drug from becoming even more prevalent in our communities.”
