Project War Shield: An aggressive initiative to combat drugs


January 9, 2019

Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation has started a new aggressive initiative to combat the drug problem within the reservation.

“(The drug problem is) present,” Project War Shield Program Coordinator Gary LaMere Jr. said Tuesday. “It’s significant. That’s why our efforts are aggressive … because the problem calls for that.”

He said most of the drugs are coming from Washington state, along U.S. Highway 2. LaMere added that the drugs are originating from Mexico, going into California, then to Oregon and Washington, with U.S. Highway 2 being a main route into the reservation.
