Drug Czar in D.M.

Gen. Barry McCaffrey, the nation's drug czar, will speak at a conference on substance abuse April 15, Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday.  Branstad noted that Iowa is getting $1.2 million to help with enhanced drug enforcement efforts.  That comes because the state has been designated a high-traffic area for several types of drug trade.  "We are kind of a crossroads for the country," Branstad said.
