"The Department of Justice Methamphetamine Initiative is working and the positive results are evident in the numbers provided by the State Crime Lab," Lautenschlager said. "Wisconsin has met the methamphetamine problem head on with a successful proactive strategy, and as a result has a level of methamphetamine use far lower than our neighboring states."Wisconsin saw a reduction in meth activity of approximately 31 percent between 2005 and 2006.

Wisconsin claims big drop in meth problem
Wisconsin's Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager recently announced that statistics compiled for the calendar year 2006 show a dramatic decrease in both the number of methamphetamine cases and methamphetamine laboratories in Wisconsin--a success she attributes to Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) enforcement strategies and the efforts of local law enforcement agencies.
