Meth problem grows on Yakama Nation

Posted: Updated:

TOPPENISH, Wash. -   The meth problem on the Yakama Reservation keeps getting worse. According to one federal agency, it's among the worst in the entire country.

That's why the Department of Homeland Security is lending a helping hand by sending instructors to the reservation from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. 

They're in Toppenish for the next three days, teaching local law enforcement and the community how to spot and deal with meth labs.
