“Twenty years ago in Montana, meth was homemade. It was homegrown. And you had purity levels less than 30%,” Daines told a gathering of his Senate colleagues during a visit to the Mexican border. “Today the meth that is getting into Montana is Mexican cartel.”
He claimed the meth trafficking was due to illegal immigration.
Not everyone on the trip seemed to be buying it. Fellow Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) was smiling through much of Daines’s talk and appeared to glance at the ground often so his grin wasn’t quite so obvious.
Daines blamed the devastating meth crisis on President Joe Biden, who took office two months ago.
Twitter critters loved piling on Daines’s weird blast from the past.
