Anti-Meth Legislation Passes Senate

Many community members have acknowledged that there is an illegal drug problem in this area and one lawmaker continues his push to end it. Representative John Kivela’s bill that looks to combat meth production and smurfing has passed the Senate this week. The bill would amend the Criminal Enterprises Chapter of the Michigan Penal Code to include a provision for racketeering involving illegal methamphetamine production. Kivela’s bill is part of a greater legislative effort to prevent the illegal production and distribution of methamphetamine in Michigan, including a new meth offender registry which will block sales of products containing pseudoephedrine for individuals appearing on the registry. Kivela says illegal drugs have no place in Michigan and he will continue the steps to keep them out of local communities.
