Smith aide sues Fleischmann aide over campaign remarks

NASHVILLE (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam and others will begin a statewide methamphetamine awareness campaign Wednesday.

The governor will join Tennessee's district attorneys and members of their staffs at an annual training conference to start the initiative, named Meth Destroys.

Haslam will unveil an educational DVD that has been distributed to public middle and high schools across the state. It's part of an ongoing partnership between the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference and the Tennessee Department of Education.

According to the website methpedia.org, the availability and demand for meth continues to increase in the state. Its use is anticipated to increase over crack cocaine.
