Federal campaign to target meth in Indian Country
New Mexico Secretary of New Mexico Indian Affairs Alvin Warren will hold a press conference April 28 at the All Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque to launch the first national anti-methamphetamine advertising campaign aimed at Indian Country.
Methamphetamine abuse rates among American Indians and Alaska Natives are the highest for any ethnicity, nearly twice that of any other ethnic group in the U.S., according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.
The ad campaign will include television commercials, billboards and print ads in New Mexico and 14 other states, and will run for roughly three months, from April 28 through July.
