Federal officials also announced that 22 people are charged with multiple crimes involved with this drug bust. A Mexican cartel was trafficking all these drugs through the city of Butte, and law enforcement was able to prevent these drugs from entering the general population. 

This bust is fantastic news for many folks who live in Montana and have seen how drugs have destroyed many communities. Back in high school in Polson, meth was a massive issue and is still a problem.
