The Ugly Truth About Methamphetamine

 
Meth is a homemade amphetamine made from common, easily accessible materials such as: anti-freeze, white gas, ether, starting fluids, Freon, drain openers, paint thinner, acetone, and ephedrine or pseudoephedrine. It can be produced in fairly common areas and locations from homes to inside of vehicles.


Meth is extremely dangerous and highly addictive. Please use our web site to find out more information on Meth, phone numbers and resources to get help, and other very useful links to find out more about Meth.

Scott County Meth Task Force Names Local Video Winners
 
April 16, 2015; Shakopee, Minnesota – In broadening its larger anti-drug community education and outreach approach, the Scott County Meth Task Force recently sponsored a public service announcement/video contest among our local high schools with a particular focus on heroin use. The anti-heroin video content and production was left entirely up to the student groups and their mentors. 
 
A committee -- comprised of a school superintendent, a school principal, a member of local law enforcement, a medical professional, and a recovering heroin addict judged all the submissions.  This afternoon, Scott County Attorney Ron Hocevar commended the winners on their videos, noting “… this contest fostered a wonderful opportunity to bring together the amazing creativity of our local youth with a commitment to fighting the problem of heroin use in our larger community.  These talented kids show us that they really get the seriousness of the issue, and they should be recognized for the time and effort they put into this project.”
 
First place was awarded to Prior Lake High School, which was awarded $4,000. The video can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igAhzsDQcYg.
Belle Plaine High School earned second place, and was awarded $2,000. The video can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdPGJ6LWc20.
Shakopee High School took third place, and was awarded $1,000. The video can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P30EI7Q5zw.
 
“The prize money was made possible by a generous donation from Shakopee Sand, LLC,” Hocevar added.  “In every sense of the concept, this project was a community effort.”
