Methamphetamine: Georgianna Decosta

Georgianna Decosta

According to a 2012 report from the U.S. Department of Justice, methamphetamine poses the greatest drug threat to Hawaii because of its association with violent crimes, theft, and widespread availability. That's one of the more recent statistics on the Hawaii Meth Project website. Many of the other statistics come from earlier years - 2008 through 2011.  So do we know the status of Hawaii's meth problem now, especially as it relates to kids? Georgianna DeCosta is the Interim Executive Director, Hawaii Meth Project and she joined the show to update us.

HB1366, Alii Place Purchase: Representative Mark Hashem

Mark Hashem

Honolulu state workers need more office space and if a bill still advancing in the legislature continues to move, they just might get it. The original House bill was short and only asked for an appropriation to identify, plan, and purchase (or build) a structure. But the latest Senate committee’s proposal squarely focuses on the purchase of Alii Place. Representative Mark Hashem was one of the introducers of the original bill and joined the show to discuss it.
