Governor Kristi Noem says it's time to take action to fight meth abuse and addiction in South Dakota. The governor laid out plans for treatment and funding in her state budget proposal, asking for more than $3.5 million in dedicated resources. This came just weeks after the state launched a new meth awareness campaign. The campaign is designed to involve all South Dakotans in the fight against addiction.
