Meth crisis rising in Wisconsin 
amid effort to fight opioids
MILWAUKEE - When Lupe Martinez was a child he was called El Viejito, which means "the old man" in Spanish. Given the circumstances, it was an appropriate nickname.

I would pay all the bills, I managed the finances for the family, and I would manage the health needs of the family."
