Crime & Safety · Marijuana Eradication
The Marijuana Eradication Program (MEP) is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration and managed by the Washington State Patrol.
The emphasis of this program is to consolidate the efforts of federal, state, and local enforcement agencies to eradicate marijuana-growing operations within the state of Washington.
This program needs your assistance to be successful.
The MEP Hotline receives and monitors anonymous information from concerned citizens regarding marijuana-growing operations. This information is sent to an enforcement agency in the jurisdiction of the reported marijuana grow for action.
For information regarding marijuana laws and education, please refer to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) site.
