LAS VEGAS, NV - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has joined other state attorney generals in Las Vegas for a conference on methamphetamine.
McDaniel discussed the problem drug yesterday with other top legal officers from Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island and Georgia who were in Las Vegas for a meeting of the Democratic Attorneys General Association.
Nevada won praise from several states for taking steps to stem what a panelist called an "epidemic" of methamphetamine use in the state.
During this year's legislative session, McDaniel's legislative package included a bill creating an electronic database to track purchases of pseudoephedrine, an ingredient used in making methamphetamine. Governor Beebe signed the bill into law in March.
