Edmondson Speaks To Nevada Meth Study Panel

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson was in Las Vegas to take part in a round-table discussion that focused on fighting methamphetamine use.

Edmondson told the panel that the number of illicit meth labs found by police in Oklahoma dropped from 812 after passage of a restrictive measure in 2004 to 56 in 2006. Six have been found so far this year.

But Edmondson told the Governor's Working Group on Methamphetamine Use that Oklahoma hasn't had the same willingness as Nevada to commit resources to preventing addiction and treating addicts.

Oklahoma's 2004 law restricted access to cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine, which can be used to make meth, and led to a federal law.

The panel Edmondson was visiting has recommended Nevada bring its restrictions into line with the federal law.
