The governor is touting the graphic anti-meth ads that are starting to air today all over Idaho – and calling for a $1 million state contribution to the effort from the state’s tobacco settlement fund. “You’re going to see disturbing and even shocking images of what meth does to people,” Otter said. “These public service spots don’t sugar-coat it, because it’s just that ugly. And Idahoans need to see and hear the truth about this drug.” He called methamphetamine a “21st century plague.”
