Navajo Nation council votes to make methamphetamine illegal

The Unnecessary Epidemic meets another Road-Block:

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. The Navajo Nation's governing council has approved a measure to outlaw methamphetamine.

The measure passed unanimously this afternoon.

Bill sponsor Hope MacDonald-LoneTree says it's a matter of urgency.

The measure now goes to Navajo President Joe Shirley Junior for consideration.

Shirley has said through a spokeswoman in the past that he would support codes to stop drug and alcohol use on the Navajo Nation.

The tribe's drug laws ban most other substances that are illegal in the rest of the United States.

But until today, made no specific mention of methamphetamine.
