National Meth Awareness Day Set for Nov. 30-Cantwell-Baird Meth Awareness Legislation Made Official-
Washington, D.C. - Senator Maria Cantwell and Congressman Brian Baird today announced the Administration has heeded their call for greater awareness of the meth epidemic and declared November 30 to be National Meth Awareness Day. Cantwell and Baird succeeded in passing legislation (S. Res. 313 and H. Res. 556) earlier this year that called for the designation of an entire week to increase awareness of the meth epidemic and educate the public about the dangers of meth use. The Department of Justice ceded a single Meth Awareness Day - November 30 - which DOJ will officially announce on Wednesday.
