This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Crystal meth ruled out in home explosion (New Brunswick,Canada)

CBC News
Chemical specialists say a house explosion in Smiths Corner last week may not be linked to the production of crystal meth, though drugs were likely being made in the home.

RCMP began investigating the house on March 22, after neighbours found a man wandering aimlessly around the neighbourhood.

Valerie Thompson worried the man might be dangerous, so she brought in her dogs and locked her door. "He didn't look like he was in the right frame of mind," she said.

Neighbours called the police, who took the man away on suspicion of drugs. The next day, a small explosion blew the roof off the house and it became engulfed in flames.

RCMP Sgt. Dave Mazzerolle says police believed the home was producing crystal meth, a highly addictive and inexpensive type of amphetamine. "Based on preliminary evidence, there was a strong indication there was a crystal meth lab inside the residence," he said.

Officers brought in chemical specialists from Montreal to examine the charred remains of the home, and concluded that there isn't enough concrete evidence to prove the existence of a crystal meth lab.
