State and city leaders say Oklahoma must find solutions to its problem with meth.

A meeting is set for this September in Tulsa to discuss how to clamp down on the illegal drug.

The State Bureau of Narcotics says the number of meth labs seized in Oklahoma has increased nearly ten-thousand percent since 1994.

Mayor Susan Savage says we've got to stop it before it completely takes over.

The Mayor's Meth Summit is scheduled for September 19th at the Tulsa Convention Center.

Businessmen, hospital officials, educators, law officers and the general public are welcome to attend.

Grant money is paying for the summit.
