You can gain more information from the CAMP Fact Sheet.
Rural communities are often hit hard because it is easy to product these drugs in camps and trailers hidden in the woods. As these drugs are distributed and sold in rural places like the U.P. they have a devastating impact on their communities destroying the ability to maintain meaningful work, damaging children, encouraging more crime, and much more.
How does it propose to do this?
COPS Office encourages sites to develop
partnerships with other agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, fire departments, local businesses,
mental health organizations, child protection services, and
other local law enforcement entities. The COPS Office
also encourages data collection and information-sharing
efforts aimed at better identifying and responding to the
needs of drug endangered children.
Drugs and Economic Impact?
Heavy use of drugs takes a toll on economic growth as crime rises and people are taken out of the labor pool. Companies often don't invest in areas where they are unlikely to find a receptive environment where healthy workers are present and safe neighborhoods exist. Thus, these destructive drugs damage other long-term prospects of a community. They should be compassionately thwarted.
