Listen: Mainstreet Radio series: Meth in Minnesota Pt. 3 of 7
0:00

As part of the Mainstreet Radio series “Meth in Minnesota,” MPR’s Cara Hetland reports on the unintended victims of meth…children.

There are children in Minnesota who live where meth is made. There are children whose parents use methamphetamine. In fact, when adults are arrested for using or making meth, one-third of them are the parents of small children. In one Minnesota county, there is a baby born addicted to meth every week. Adding to the problem, people who provide foster care of these children feel overwhelmed.

This is part three of a seven-part series.
