Dallam County & Hartley County – Uptick in Drug-Interdiction Traffic Stops…

Over the last year I have noticed there has been an uptick in drug-interdiction traffic stops by state troopers on U.S. Highway 87 in Dallam County and Hartley County. Highway 87 is the major road for travel from Colorado through New Mexico to the high plains of Texas. After seeing the revenues generated by drug-interdiction activity along Interstate 40, it appears Dallam and Hartley County authorities want to get in on the action.

With the relaxed attitude towards marijuana use and possession in Colorado, I expect to see more and more activity along Highway 87.
