Members of the Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County and law enforcement officials are hoping they can educate the public about the dangers of methamphetamine before it becomes a problem in the county. Fond du Lac Police Chief Bill Lamb says the country was ill-prepared for heroin and opioid epidemic. Lamb was one of the speakers at a town hall meeting last Thursday night at the Goodrich Little Theatre. He used a specific example of how a person can be affected by meth even if they do not know someone who is a user. He told the audience to picture someone with a 16-year-old son or daughter working at a convenience store who has a gun stuck in the face of that son or daughter by a meth user robbing the store. Lamb says another misconception is that methamphetamine is cooked up in make-shift labs locally. Most of the meth is trafficked into the area from bigger cities.
