According to the South Dakota Governor's Office, one of the state's top priorities is battling the meth epidemic in the Mount Rushmore State:
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is working daily with local, state, and federal partners to target, disrupt, and dismantle groups that are trafficking drugs in and into South Dakota. Volunteers from our South Dakota National Guard are also helping secure our southern border. Thousands of pounds of meth and other dangerous drugs are pouring across the border into our country – unfortunately, too much of it ends up in South Dakota.
