Interim Attorney General address the drug problem

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- Illegal drugs continue to be a problem across South Dakota but there are differences of opinion on how to address them.

Interim Attorney General Mark Vargo says law enforcement is still seeing the same range of drugs.

Vargo, who is the Pennington County States Attorney, says dollars are limited in fighting drugs.

Vargo says putting drug offenders in jail won’t solve the problem.

Vargo will hold the office until January when former Attorney General Marty Jackley will be sworn in for another four-year term.
