Governor Fletcher and the War on Drugs

By Associated Press | 

Governor Ernie Fletcher wants to give the state more ammunition in the war on drugs.

The governor has proposed increasing spending by 50 million dollars over the next two years to help the state be better equipped to fight the state's drug problem.

The proposal would provide more law enforcement and public defenders, while increasing drug treatment options for inmates.

Fletcher also wants to expand jails to help ease overcrowding.
