THE EDUCATOR

America's Meth  Prevention Cookbook
"Recipes for Community Safety"

Developed in cooperation between:
The Safe Streets Campaign & The National Guard in support of the many State, Local, and community agencies, and citizens working towards a METH free America.

Designed and co-authored by Roger Lake, President of the Washington State Narcotics Officer Association and Major Russ Huard of the National Guard Counterdrug Office in Washington, DC.


For many years the production and use of Methamphetamine (METH) has plagued the west coast region of the United States. It has destroyed lives and created a nightmare of environmental hazards that threaten the safety of our families and communities. METH transitioned into the Midwest where it has gained a steady hold, devastating both rural and inner city communities. Studies now show that, not only is METH production and use increasing in Midwest and Western America, it is spreading East at an alarming rate. It is considered by many experts to be the most insidious of all illegal drugs used in America. While inexpensive to make in dollar costs, the price paid in destruction to the mind and body of the user are far too great a price to accept. This METH PREVENTION COOKBOOK is a result of collaboration between the National Guard, community based organizations, and the local law enforcement agencies in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. This document was produced with the intent to provide specialized community based METH training. I am sure you will find this book BOTH interesting and informative, and when ready to begin utilizing this package, simply click on the buttons below.
