This meeting featured a presentation from Steve Freng from the NW High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). This presentation brought the group up to date on current trends in drug use; Marijuana, Designer drugs, and synthetic drugs (prescriptions),
HIDTA found in many States and was formed to coordinate the many drug enforcement agencies. All information is routed through HIDTA. This helps to prevent one agency from accidentally stumbling into another agency's territory during an ongoing investigation. This often endangers undercover agents.
A very good meeting with many questions from the audience. For more details, read the coverage by the West Seattle Blog.
