What they MEAN is that they're on top of the problem and trying to take care of it. However, plenty of people on social media are interpreting the slogan more literally...like it's saying that everyone in South Dakota is on meth.

South Dakota's governor, Kristi Noem says she doesn't mind that people are making fun of the accidental double meaning on social media.
