Hoeven and DEA head talk Bakken drug issues

Email

North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven spoke with the Drug Enforcement Administration chief this week to talk about getting more help in western North Dakota.

The DEA currently only has agents in Fargo and Bismarck, and is criticized by some for a lack of visibility in the West.

Earlier this month, Hoeven wrote to DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart to ask for more support after new crime numbers showed increased drug activity, according to a press release from his office.
