BILLINGS- In Montana, drug prosecutions have increased by 33 percent in recent years, according to numbers coming from Montana’s U.S Attorney Kurt Alme.

Drug traffickers directly linked to Mexican cartels drive our Interstate system bringing meth to Montana and putting people’s lives at risk.

Tonight, in the final part of our Drug Superhighway series, we hear from a Billings woman who talks openly about how meth took years of her youth away.

Mandy Nunez spent years of her life addicted to meth.

In tonight’s story, Nunez talks about the drug, where she tried it for the first time and what it feels like. She also talks openly about the loss in her life she’s experienced from using the drug.

Most importantly Nunez talks about the moment she knew she needed to change.

The final story in our series airs tonight on the MTN 9 o’clock News and at 10 on KTVQ.
